Perea to link up with Rovers
Edixon Perea will link up with Blackburn Rovers starting Monday, Sky Sports understands.
The Colombian international forward is a free agent after leaving Brazilian club Gremio and this summer and Rovers were certainly not the only side sniffing around.
The lad also used to play in France with Bordeaux and has been chased by quite a few other English Premier League clubs as well as the SPL.
Perea's job now will involve impressing Rovers manager Sam Allardyce and proving his fitness to club medical staff before he seals a move.
Sky Sports say that - 'South American sources have confirmed that Perea is flying into England on Sunday and he should start training with Blackburn on Monday.'
The good news? He wouldn't cost Rovers a bean as far as a fee goes...
