Chimbo told to find a new club

Rovers defender Pascal Chimbonda has been told he should find a new club, the Daily Mail is reporting.

Chimbonda can play anywhere across the back four but has found first team starts as rare as most French steaks.

Chimbonda was told only three months ago that he could not move to West Ham on transfer deadline day as Rovers needed cover in the versatile Frenchman but with a takeover now in place it seems the ex-Wigan, Spurs and Sunderland man will be surplus to requirements.

His cause probably wasn't helped with a truly awful display in the 7-1 defeat to Man United at the weekend.

With Gael Givet also rumoured to be unsettled it is safe to assume there will be a little overhaul of the left back spot in the next transfer window...

definately, never rated him and another complete waste of money, think he would struggle to get any takers though

Chimbonda was awful against United, most of United's attack came from their right flank, Chim was clueless. With him and Givet up for sale, we need a new left back. Bring back Warnock!

I know he's had a few shockers at left back but Sam still plays him there. He's much better at Right back but Salgado rules in that department. With Givet also playing awful lately and Olsson moving to left wing we desperately need a decent left back in January if he leaves.

what about throwing him out on the wing? i thought we were falling sort of midfield options
