Rovers Target Championship Trio?!?!
Blackburn Rovers are today being linked with a trio of Championship footballers according to the newspapers.
One newspaper is saying that James Beattie is a striker that Mark Hughes would like to bring back to Ewood Park for a fee in the region of £5 million!!! Beattie might have scored plenty of goals in the Championship but it is hardly the Premier League is it!!! Beattie's Sheffield United team-mate Michael Tongue is another name being bounced around the newspaper world, with the blades midfielder being touted with an Ewood switch for £3 million.
The most interesting of all are further links with Crystal Palace's England Under-21 International Tom Soares, however the 22-year-old insists that he remains fully committed to Palace despite the links he has heard about.
Soares told he Croydon Advertiser: "Obviously it's brilliant when you hear that Premiership clubs are interested in you - but I just want to concentrate on Palace.
"If I keep working hard things will take care of themselves - but first things first, I want to help Palace get promoted.
"I'm confident I've got what it takes to be a Premiership player - but this is where I want to be at the moment."
