Watford have dipped back into the loan market to sign Brazilian midfielder Iriney Santos from sister club Granada.
The Spanish club, also owned by Watford supremos the Pozzo family, confirmed on their website that Iriney has agreed a season-long deal at Vicarage Road.
The 32-year-old has spent more than 10 years in Spain and also played for Rayo Vallecano, Celta Vigo, Real Betis and Almeria.
Watford caused controversy last season by bringing in a host of loanees from Granada and the other Pozzo-owned club, Udinese.
The 23-year-old, who has a year remaining on his contract, was the subject of a cash bid from the Championship club.
But despite being on the transfer list by his own request Grant, who scored 16 times last season, will not be leaving unless the price is right.
"Blackpool have been in contact," Hill told the club's website. "Blackpool have tabled a bid, it hasn't been accepted by the club.
"They have to come back with slightly more money on a down payment."
