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.

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.
