Van Heerden On Trial With Sheffield United??
Blackburn Rovers midfielder Elrio van Heerden in understood to be on the verge of joining Sheffield United on trial.
Van Heerden has struggled to make any impact at Ewood Park since his arrival at Ewood Park last summer and has already expressed his disappointment at not playing more for Rovers so far. It's understood that he'll join Sheff United on trial with the view to joining them in January in a loan move to help him acclimatise to English football and help secure himself a place in South African's World Cup squad.
This wouldn't be a bad thing as no one is benefiting by the South African International sitting around doing nothing for his money!!
Meanwhile another Rovers player who is already on loan with the Blades impresses their manager Kevin Blackburn. Mark Bunn is on loan at Bramall Lane and the goalkeeper's form is pleasing.
Blackwell told the Sheffield Star: "I'm really pleased with Bunny. He's done ever so well."
This is good news for Rovers, however, only if he returns to Ewood and this isn't something that looks that likely now as I'd personally feel that Bunn has become very happy with first-team football and wouldn't want to return to Rovers to be the back-up to Paul Robinson, if Bunn would even make the bench??
