No Rovers Deal For Castillo

Blackburn Rovers have opted against the signing Ecuadorian International midfielder Segundo Castillo.

Rovers had been keen on bringing the 26-year-old to Ewood Park, and he trained with the club during our Pre-Season training camp in Germany. A 6 million move from Red Star Belgrade had been mooted for some weeks, however, chairman John Williams has confirmed that we will not be following up our interest and he has returned to Red Star.

Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph "At this moment in time, we won't be making an offer for Castillo.

"The player has returned to Red Star Belgrade.

I don't know enough about Castillo to know how good he is but 6 million did seem an awful lot of money, so I'm personally not surprised that we've not followed up and interest with a bid.
Walker
Doesn't this show u the benefits of getting players in on trial, i knew Juve were after him but nothing else. As u said Walker 6m for a unknown is a lot of money for a club like Rovers to waste
Clint
I do believe that we have heard a lot of agent talk recently its a bold move by ince considering he said he was up to the task a few days back, which is good he can admit when he's wrong!! positive news and move by ince we now know he won't sign players unless he's 100% certain.
MajiRovers
Well yeah but we still can't tell if his 100% certainty is good enough, but time will tell if our new motto can be "in Ince we trust".

It does show that Ince wount rush in and buy just for the sake of it! It would've of been easy for him to buy and then admit later, if it didnt work, that it was his 1st season and all that, at least he had the stones to get rid quick, when he got a good look at him
Clint
I think this means we could be in for Bresciano... good god we'll never hear the end of Sas if he signs. lol
