Olsson Set For New Deal
Blackburn Rovers are reportedly ready to offer pacy left back Martin Olsson his first professional contract.
The 19-year-old joined the Rovers academy at the start of 2006 from Swedish outfit Hogaborgs BK, and now provides cover for current left-back Stephen Warnock.
Olsson made his Premier League debut against Derby this season, and hopes to re-pay the faith shown in him by the Lancashire club.
'The club have believed in me all the time and I want to stay here.' Olsson told the Swedish press.
To be fair to Martin from what I have seen from him in the Premier League, UEFA and Carling Cup, he has what it takes. He is young and a big player for the future. He provides valuable cover in an area where historically we are pretty weak.
Good stuff all around.
