Rothen Expected At Rovers For Talks

Rothen Expected At Rovers For Talks

French midfielder Jerome Rothen is expected at Rovers for talks with Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce very soon.

Jerome currently plays for PSG but is not wanted there anymore due to discplinary problems so he is understandably keen to move on.

Allardyce, who has a reputation for getting the best out of fiery players - sees Rothen as a great bargain signing as he feels he can keep Rothen under control.

This one seems to be gathering pace and it looks like he can provide immediate competition in the centre and on the left of midfield.

I thought this one had died a death so it is a suprise to see this one back up and running!

This would be a superb signing. But I´ve heard something about PSG demanding a fee for Rothen. Do we have anymore left from our budget?

I think we do dont we? £6 million Kalinic, Di Santo loan, Jacobsen free, N'Zonzi £400,00, Van the Man free, Givet £4 million - I make that £10.4 million....

Which means 2-4 million pounds?

left for new players? I thought we only had 13-14 million this season. That some of the RSC money was spend on some outcomes.

this should be a gd signing if big sam can keep him under control
07/08/2009 15:09:00
sceptical that he can still perform to his once high standards.... also, with a couple of 'fiery' players at the club, how long is ther 'til a disagreement?
07/08/2009 15:25:00
Be good if he can keep him on his leash

TBF Sam had a combo Campo, Anelka, Diouf, Nolan and Diouf at the Reebok and he kept them all in check - I wouldnt worry about that GRB!
