Blackburn Rovers defender Andre Ooijer is talking up his chances of leaving Ewood Park this Summer.
The Dutch International is contracted to Rovers until next Summer (having only recently agreed a new contract) but he isn't happy with the prospect of not being a first team regular next season, so assuming what he is understood to have said is being portrayed in the right light, and is not a typical media attempt of making people believe what they want them to his time could be up after the European Championships, with him looking for a move away, probably back to the Netherlands?
Ooijer told Sportweek: "I appreciated it then (his new contract) but, a moment later, I was sat on the bench.
"I am not happy about that.
"I do not wish to continuously sit on the bench.
"You should never say very strongly: 'I want away'.
"I have talked with Sigi Lens, my agent, and agreed that I would concentrate on the European Championship and the rest is up to him.
"Sigi knows what I want. Back to Holland? I have not thought about it - there will be a price-tag on my head.
"Again, I'm not saying I want to go down that road.
"I am open to another club, even though it was necessary that I always said 'no' immediately."
My feelings with any player that is unhappy at the club (if Ooijer even is?!?!) is that they should be allowed to leave, so if this is what Ooijer would really want then I don't think we should stand in his way.
