Kalinic's Rovers Move Agreed In Principle??
Blackburn Rovers are understood to be closing in on Nikola Kalinic after reportedly agreeing a deal in principle with Hadjuk Split.
The 21-year-old striker suddenly appeared from nowhere on Friday to look as though he's now a dead cert to sign for Rovers. Kalinic was understood to be on the verge of a move to Portsmouth before this deal collapsed and Rovers moved in and are now understood to be close to completing his £6 million signing.
Speculation remains that Portsmouth (and Porto) remain interested in Kalinic but it's thought that a deal has been agreed for the Croatian to sign a four-year contract and his arrival at Ewood Park will be confirmed upon him successfully being granted a work permit.
