Bolton Monitoring The Axe?
Media reports understand that Blackburn Rovers midfielder Aaron Mokoena is a January target for Bolton Wanderers.
The South African International started the season in the Rovers side but has since seen his place if the first-team slip away and he is now very much out of favour. The 27-year-old is out of contract in the summer, so with his contract unlikely to be renewed Paul Ince would most likely be wanting to recoup something in January and Bolton are understood to be the club most interested in Mokoena.
Moves to Stoke City and Manchester City were mooted in the summer just gone but nothing happened, however, seeing the Axe leave in the New Year wouldn't be a surprise at all. Mokoena has done a job for us, but his days are numbered and most of us had expected a departure already.
Meanwhile (and not really that relevant to us anymore, other than the fact that it is mildly amusing!!!) former Rovers midfielder David Bentley has spoken to the media, stating that he "knows people are laughing" at Tottenham Hotspur.
Bentley said: "I know people are having a laugh at the fact we are bottom of the league at the moment but it's up to everyone at the club to stop the jokes.
"We're not happy with what has been happening. You cannot hide from the situation but what we need are a team of leaders who take responsibility. We have to grow as people.
"We have more than enough good players at Tottenham to get us out of this situation and I give my word that we will."
Tottenham will move away from the bottom on the table (surely!) but without wanting it viewed as sour grapes (and we did appreciated what he did here at Ewood Park) every Rovers fan must be getting some pleasure from seeing his (and Spurs') current plight, which has even seen him lose his place in the England Squad, and retaining that was meant to be one of his main reasons for wanting to leave Ewood!!!
