Van Heerden off to Turkey

Blackburn Rovers Winger, Elrio Van Heerden, has reportedly signed a short term contract with Turkish club, Sivasspor. Early reports are that Van Heerden has signed a loan contract, with Sivasspor having the option to buy, with a figure yet to be determined.

Elrio struggled to make in impact on the Rovers first team squad, and this is seen by many as Sam Allardyce and the board attempting to clear some wage space to bring in 1 or 2 fresh new faces who will have the impact on the first team squad.

More to come on this transfer.....

Bit of a shame if we have never really got to see him in action but there must be a reason for him not playing. Shame we will probably never know!

Maybe this is where the money comes from? Selling a couple of fringe players?

Bit of a mystery this one. as he seemed a good bet at the time and Sam said he didnt expect him to crack on till xmas anyway - strange!!!!

This could be the ultimate wheel and deal. Sam brings him in on a free and then sells him on in a short space of time. If his departure make room for someone who will come in and play straight away then I'll be happy

Good luck to him. Hope he gets the playing time he needs to be match fit. Clearly, playing in this world cup meant everything to him.

He's a South African, easy confusion with the Dutch sounding name ;)
