Sam Still Waiting For Di Santo
Blackburn Rovers are still waiting to find out what is happening with a possible loan move to Ewood Park on Chelsea's Franco Di Santo.
Rovers were understood to have virtually agreed a deal, however, Sam Allardyce isn't sure what's happening now as the Argentine is going to the United States of America with Chelsea for their pre-season tour but Allardyce would still be interested.
Allardyce told the Lancashire Telegraph: "I don't know what the situation is with Di Santo so I'm not particularly clear on what's been talked about there.
"I would have thought Ancelotti would be looking at all of his players first before making a decision on whether he's letting anyone go.
"But obviously we would be interested in anyone from Chelsea if they were the right price for us."
Personally if it was me I'd be moving on to other targets and forgetting about this one. However, if we can't sign anyone else between now and the time Carlo Ancelotti decides what his plans are for Di Santo we could revisit this. We can't just wait for Chelsea to decide what they're doing with the striker though can we, however, I'm certain this isn't what Big Sam is doing anyway!!!
Meanwhile Rovers have given up on Kevin Davies and it's understood that Christian Vieri isn't joining us for pre-season.
Big Sam has been interested in re-signing Davies from Bolton Wanderers but revealed on Sunday that John Williams had been in touch with Bolton and they told him that the 31-year-old wasn't for sale so Davies isn't returning to Ewood. 35-year-old Vieri was subject of speculation linking him to Rovers on Sunday, however, the former Italian International isn't linking up with Rovers after being released by Atalanta.
