Rovers Transfer Rumblings Roundup
Another day, another rumour, however, the rumour mills have gone into overdrive today with Rovers being linked left, right & centre with players.
First up is the Angulo link, which has been given another angle after appointing new first team coach Steve Kean. Allardyce is hoping to use Kean's lingual skills to convince Angulo to sign.
Next is a new name on the list, Sunderland's Nyron Nosworthy. Apparently he wants to leave the Black Cats and Portsmouth, Stoke, Rovers and West Ham are thought to be showing an interest - whilst Aston Villa and Everton are both believed to have scouted him over pre-season. Pinch of salt there I think.
Another new name in the frame is Spartak Moscow midfielder Radoslav Kovac. Kovac played for West Ham the second half of last season on loan and now it seems that Rovers and the Hammers are in a 'race' to sign him.
Finally, an old name raises its head. Jerome Rothen. Rovers have apparently invited him over this coming weekend to tour the facilities. Major stumbling block here is that PSG still want a fee for the 31 year old.
In a couple of outgoings, Rovers reserves utility player, Alex Marrow has joined Oldham athletic on a one month loan and Tranmere have signed reserve defender Gavin Gunning on a one month loan deal.
