Rovers finally get their Man

Rovers finally get their Man

Today's reports have finally confirmed the news we have all been waiting for. Croatian International, Nikola Kalinic, has inked pen to paper, signing a 4 year deal with Blackburn Rovers, pending a work permit.

The 21 year old, who has 2 international caps under his belt, scored 32 goals from 59 appearances for Hadjuk Split. The initial transfer fee is reported to be 6 million pounds, but this could increase to 12 million pounds.

Lets hope the permit goes through, leaving us with a good range of strikers to get the season under way!!!

I hope this added clause of the fee rising to £12m is not true. I would be very upset if we have signed a player that could cost us £12m, a player who hasn't kicked a ball in anger in one of Europe's top four leagues! £6m seems like good business but these add-ons are very worrying.

look on the bright side though....these clauses are most likely performance based.....20 goals costs another 2 mill, 25 caps another mill and so on......if we end up paying 12 mill, then that means he has done some brilliant things at Rovers.....I do understand what your saying though....lets home their is enough in the kitty for a cheap Sam Allardyce special signing....

well if he costs 12 it will be worth it. Due to it being appearances and goals most probably. Can't wait hopefully will be in time for pre season against hibs.

I'm very pleased we've landed Kalinic.. but I have to agree with Roversman. If true.. these add-ons are ridiculous.

wouldn't be worried about the add ons boys. If he does enough to activate them, we have one of the worlds best strikers in our team- and he has four years with us!

If we sell him in a year for 25-30 mill what is the problem? Strikers at us seems to be great one year and then they fall out. Let see how Kalinic does it......cheers

No they've translated it wrong from Hajduk website, the whole deal including the players salary's for the 4 year contract he signed is about 12 M pounds or to be exact 14 M euros plus 0.5 M € when he scores 15 goals and 15 % of the next transfer if the transfer is bigger than this one.

So in generally Hajduk got 7 M € + possible 0.5 M € and 15% of next transfer

Thanks for that Antenov! Good for the clarification! That is a good deal for us! I am quite happy with the 15% add on the next sale - its to be expected for someone who is good at a young age - well done Sam again!
