Rovers To Miss Out On Crouch???
Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce is understood to be a fan of Peter Crouch but the chances of Crouch coming to Ewood Park appear to have vanished.
Speculation has grown that the England International would leave Portsmouth and this has seen speculation grow that Crouch could sign for Rovers (even more after Roque Santa Cruz FINALLY left), with Sunderland and Stoke City are understood to be interested. However, the striker's agent has said that Crouch isn't leaving Fratton Park.
Jonathan Barnett told the Portsmouth News: "There has been nothing from other clubs for Peter Crouch.
"He still has a contract with Portsmouth and he intends to be there next season. He has no intention of moving on."
Even if the 28-year-old did decide to leave Portsmouth having the money to bring Crouch to Ewood could've proven difficult given the budget that Allardyce has to work to.
Meanwhile former Rovers manager Paul Ince is being lined up for a return to management with Charlton Athletic.
Newspaper reports have linked Ince with the League One side (and to think not that long ago Charlton were in the Premier League!!!) if they decide that current manager Phil Parkinson isn't the man to carry on the job?
