Blackburn Agree Fee For Chimbonda

Blackburn Agree Fee For Chimbonda

Blackburn have this morning agreed to pay £2 million for Spurs utility defender Pascal Chimbonda.

The fee was agreed and announced about an hour ago and will allow Stephen Warnock to complete his £8 million move to Aston Villa.

Sam has insisted he wants two players for the £8 million he will get for selling Warnock and now it seems that player number one is on his way.

This is a good deal for all parties as Pascal is a versatile player who is better than his second turgid spell at Spurs indicates and add into the mix that he is surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane and we have an agreement that will suit everybody.

Expect this one to be wrapped up quickly.

He may not be the most popular player about but he is good and allows us some cash to spend elsewhere. Good work for me!

You will get excellent value for the money here. Given a good run of matches and some faith, he is a very good player.

Good player on the cheap to be fair. Not really needed at WHL but still like I say a good player for a good price.

isnt chimbonda a right sided player though?
26/08/2009 12:55:00
i think he is primarily right footed but can play all across the back, have always rated him since he came to the PL as he gives you an extra something down the flanks.... could turn out to be an interesting move....

I think he's associated with playing right back but I've seen him credited with being able to play across the back four?? - in which case his versatility will be very useful - especially if Ollson needs more time to get upto speed. Press have also liked us with Gregory Cerdan -amongst others - I wonder if BSA is hedging his bets if Ryan Nelson looks likely to be injury prone?

He has played plenty of times for Spurs at left back....

Good player but with an attitude, I'm sure Fat Sam will keep him under control. Good at getting forward and great header of the ball but tackling can let him down.

great deal for you guys, best of luck to pascal, who is in no way as disloyal as painted by many.
26/08/2009 14:33:00
thats what we like to hear - I personally think he has suffered in the media through one mistake he made whilst at Wigan. Sam is just the guy to get the best out of him.
