Grella set for Galatasaray

Grella set for Galatasaray

Vince Grella looks to be on his way to Galatasaray as the club has reached an 'agreement in principle' to buy the player off Blackburn Rovers.

Vince has been plagued by little injuries ever since joining Blackburn back in 2008 - something which may have played a part in their willingness to sell the Aussie.

It is now in the players hands what he wants to do but Grella is borderline impossible to get a comment from as he prepares for the World Cup in South Africa.

£2 million is the fee reported by the Lancashire Telegraph which has been agreed between the sides and could pave the way for extra cash to buy a striker with.

One more striker and one less midfielder would not be a bad thing.

Seems to be like were clearing as much off the wagebill as we can so we can get a Guti or some such player. If we do all this hard work only to sign Beattie though. I would be biterly disappointed!

Wish him all the best but if this does go through its probably for the best. It just hasn't worked out and the extra funds will be much needed.

whay! Guti or Ledley in to replace! + a 6 million striker now we have 2.15 from the league.. 1.75 from benny sale.. and 2m from this!

And Rover23 - we earned £8 million in prize money from the league for finishing 10th (approx)
05/06/2010 16:27:00
yes but we budgeted to finish 13th and its 750k per position.. so 750k x3 - £2.25m for the 3 places higher we finished which sam gets to spend..

It's a shame to see one of the Aussie boys go, I do like Vince. But his injury problems have been a nightmare. May have been worth the gamble to see how he goes in the World Cup and ask for more, But if he was to get injured there would probably be no sale. So all things considered its a good move for Rovers.

Blackburn Confirm Caddis Arrival

Caddis, who left Bury at the end of a short deal, was given his chance due to his previous with Blackburn boss Mowbray at Celtic. But the ex-Birmingham full back has secured a deal.

Samuel Signing Sealed

Blackburn have signed Reading forward Dominic Samuel, who once worked with Mowbray at Coventry - also loaned to Colchester, Dagenham and Gillingham, ending last season at Ipswich.

Just Saying, But What If....

Blackburn will do well under the boss. However, for arguments sake, if Rovers didn't secure an instant Championship return what would happen to Mowbray?

Caddis At The Double

Caddis has now spent the past three weeks with Blackburn, joining the club in Austria last week, and Mowbray, his boss at Celtic earlier in his career, is close to making his decision.
