Sparky Tracking Bulgarian Starlet
Blackburn Rovers are trailing Bulgarian youngster Ivelin Popov, if newspapers reports are to be believed anyway.
The suggestion is that Rovers manager Mark Hughes has flown the 20-year-old over from Bulgaria for talks with the view of a summer transfer to Ewood Park from his current club Liteks Lovech. A quick search on the player saw me find out that he is understood to a fiery character, and one that isn't afraid to have an outburst on or off the pitch, with him also known as a womaniser!!! As for his footballing ability he is understood to be a winger in the mould of David Bentley, and can also play as a supporting striker.
The Bulgarian International (he made his debut last year) has previously trained with Feyenoord for several months and was mooted with a move to Manchester City in the January transfer window.
