News Update - Kalinic hands in transfer request
Rovers could be a striker down in the very near future with news reaching us that Niko Kalinic has handed in a transfer request.
Kalinic was used, shall we say, sparingly last season and his fall down the pecking order under Steve Kean was a source of much discussion amongst Rovers fans.
Some really rate him with his ball holding skills and strength whilst others feel he just falls over a lot.
But due to the lack of games it seems Niko has tried to force Rovers hand with a transfer request made just a short while ago.
Sky Sports are reporting - 'Skysports.com understands unsettled Blackburn striker Nikola Kalinic has handed in a transfer request at Ewood Park.
The Croatia international has been strongly linked with a move away from Ewood Park after finding himself out of favour under Steve Kean.
Kalinic is believed to be surplus to requirments in Kean's plans for next season and Rovers are open to offers for the 23-year-old.
Ukrainian team Dnipro are thought to have made an offer in the region of £4million for Kalinic, but Blackburn are struggling to agree a fee with them for the former Hadjuk Split ace.'
Will be sad to see him go but after such public snubbing at the back end of last season can he really stay unless big promises are made to him about his future?
