Rovers target Monaco defender
Steve Kean looks to have found his first major signing of the summer transfer window in Monaco defender Cedric Mongongu.
Monaco have recently been relegated from the french top flight and Rovers are looking to capitalise.
The defender should be allowed to leave his current club for around £2.6 million, and Rovers are set to swoop in with a bid within the next day or two.
At 22, he is certainly in keeping with the youth recruitment at Rovers, hopefully another bargain to follow along the lines of Chris Samba and Ryan Nelsen.
A cheap replacement for young Phil, but with Mongongu being from the same country as Chris Samba, perhaps this is more than just a defensive replacement? A reason for Samba to stay?
