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.

Mikey Thoughts

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.

I think that Olsson has bags of potential and could play left-back or in a left-midfield role. I'm just glad that we've got him committed to us for the time being.

roversman - I've been happy to give Berner the benefit of the doubt but again against Arsenal he DIDN'T do anything to convince me, so I also wish Olsson had been given the chance in that Match.
