Beattie for Roberts swap?
Blackburn boss Sam Allardyce is apparentyl very keen to bring former Rovers player James Beattie back to Ewood Park - especially now knowing that Stoke are actively looking for a buyer.
But the twist has come in the form of Jason Roberts. Big Sam is allegedly willing to swap J-Rob for Beattie in the January window.
Allardyce is willing to take the gamble on Beattie but needs to offload before buying (as we well know) hence the swap with Roberts is mooted.
Beattie is rumoured to be very keen to jump at the chance to play for the club he supports and Sam likes Jason Roberts but is reported to be prepared to throw him in to the mix if it means acquiring Beattie.
