Di Santo Imminent But Ghilas Deal Breaks Down
Rovers striking options could be looking a whole lot better very soon as the arrival of Franco Di Santo from Chelsea (on loan) is to be completed after getting the nod from Chelsea to go find first team football for a season.
Reports are coming in that Carlo Ancelotti has rubber stamped the season long loan deal of young startlet Franco Di Santo from Chelsea after deciding that he is very good but in need of more regular first team action which Rovers can certainly give him.
That deal should be going through very shortly and will provide Big Sam with the lead the line, target man striker that he desires.
However, the signing of Kamel Ghilas has BROKEN DOWN at the final stage after a tests at Ewood Park have shown something untowards and Sam has decided not to sign the deal off and sent the player back to Celta Vigo.BR>
We still have a lot of money left at our disposal though so we could be using a lot of this for a central midfielder, creative force or maybe Sam has something bigger in mind striker wise?
Sam seems to think he can do better elsewhere and he wants to make the right decision on his strikers - which is fair enough.
It will be interesting to see what the VBers think of this.
