The Rovers Transfer Wrap

The Rovers Transfer Wrap

In this weeks edition of the Transfer wrap, we bring you more rumours, more speculation, and some done deals

Players Out

Tugay: The legend has left the Holy Turf of Ewood Park, with a rousing reception from the Rovers Faithful, what the future holds, we dont know, but hopefully he will come back one day in a coaching role....

Likelihood- Done Deal

Aaron Mokoena: The Axe has signed a 3 year contract with Portsmouth, in the hope he finds more regular first team football. Best wishes for the Axe

Likelihood- Done Deal

Carlos Villanueva- Off to Egypt he goes, the Chilean international and Rovers could not come to turns with extending a loan deal with his home club, so he was left with no alternative, best of luck for Carlos

Likelihood- Done Deal

Andre Oijer- After 3 years of service, Andre his heading home, signing a contract with PSV. Best of luck to Andre

Likelihood- Done Deal

(4 players out, no money in.....)

Roque Santa Cruz- Rovers are asking for 19 million pounds....will someone bite? Tottenham, Portsmouth and now Arsenal are linked, with Man City's interest diminished

Likelihood- High, hopefully

Benni McCarthy- The 31 year old striker is rumoured to be wanted in Portugal, will someone snap him up?

Likelihood- Low

Matt Derbyshire- Wanted by Olympiakos, but happy to come back home if promised first team football....Fingers crossed he comes back

Likelihood- Medium

Steven Warnock- Was wanted by several clubs, however recent comments state that he wants to stay and fight on with Rovers

Likelihood- Low



Players In

Gael Givet- After his 6 months loan spell, Rovers have had enough, and signed him up, 3.5 Million dollar deal, good business

Likelihood- Done Deal.

Nikos Giannkopoulis- 16 year old Goal Keeper, apparently underwent a succesful trial, straight into the reserve team once paperwork is completed....

Likelihood- High

Peter Lovenkrands- Newcastle Striker, 29 years old, Danish....Available on a free transfer, Sam is apparently closing in

Likelihood- Medium to High

Stephane Mbia- Cameroonian Midfielder, currently playing at Rennes, could leave the club after not signing a new contract, however only on the clubs terms....

Likelihood- Medium to Low

Modeste Mbami- Cameroonian Midfielder, 26 years old, Free Agent. Was on the books at Marseille, and has been scouted by Rovers throughout the year

Likelihood- Medium

Tuncay- 27 year old midfielder, currently at Middlesborough. Rovers could be tempted, with 4 Million the quoted figure, Sam is a fan, and might be a replacement for cult hero Tugay

Likelihood- Medium to High

Bojan- Teenage sensation has ruled out a loan move, stating he wants to fight on at Barcelona

Likelihood- No deal

Thats the wrap for the week, what will happen over the next 7 days, time will tell.....

Tuncay would be awesome! Would take that any day of the week! Mbia would also be good. As for Warnock leaving - no way!!!!

Tuncay what a player but where would he fit into the team.... he is not a good enough finisher to play fully up top.

Tuncay could play off the main striker and his creativity is sorely needed. He didnt score enough goals last season but Boro were not good enough. If Chelsea want you then you are a good player!
