Rovers To Snap Up Young Goalkeeper?

Blackburn Rovers are understood to be tying up the loose ends of a deal to bring young goalkeeper Nikos Giannakopoulos to Ewood Park.

The 16-year-old had a trial with Rovers last week and after impressing (apparently) during this it is understood that the Asteras Tripolis teenager has been offered a deal with Giannakopoulos expecting this completed very soon.

Giannakopoulos told Greek Radio Sport-FM: "As far as I know, some details remain for my transfer to Blackburn, I would say only the signatures. In the middle of July I will leave for the summer preparations.

"I am very happy to have this chance. I will leave Greece very young and if I am going to work hard I will reap the benefits from this.

"Everybody would love to play in England. The facilities, the organisation and everything works perfectly there.
"

The Greek youngster also said that we spotted him playing for his country at a youth level and after the trial we told him we wanted to sign him with him set to play a major role in the reserve side next season, if he then progresses well then his longer-term future will also lie at Ewood.

He added: "I was told that I will play football at the second team of Blackburn and if I am going to satisfy them then I will stay.

"My future there depends on my performances with the second team.
"

We've become "serial goalkeeper signers", as we're always linked with them and/or offering goalkeepers trials and usually signing them!!!
