Rovers pursue Portuguese winger Vieirinha

Rovers pursue Portuguese winger Vieirinha

Rovers are looking to add PAOK winger Vieirinha to their ranks after making a bid in the region of £3.5 million for the player.

Rovers are hoping that Vieirinha will follow Radoslav Petrovic and David Goodwillie through the door at Ewood park after both of them have agreed personal terms and are going through the last stages of the transfer process (work permit and medical respectively).

Rovers will find out later on today whether their bid for Vieirinha has been accepted with the club looking to bring in several players as soon as possible before the start of the new Premier League season.

At last some good buisness coming in. I think taht after a very very slow start, we are finally coming into our own. We were never going to be spending £15mil on players as we needed ti get 4 or 5 lads in to cover the people who left so these players for these prices is good work

I got a random msg the other day in my inbox stating we had a concrete bid for this fella, along with some other player beginning with M. Well done that man. Could be a good signing he's highly rated and fits the bill age wise.

Sounds an interesting one, but from the bits I've read it's far from done - PAOK don't look like they really want to sell. Would be interesting to see if he's up to the Prem standard.

Completely agree with both Sas and Glen's comments. It's been a ridiculous transfer season so far with so much speculation and we need to secure a top shelf striker ASAP!

So it looks like we have a striker with potential, a midfielder with a good backbone and potentially an option on the wing - is it, and I say this cautiously... all starting to come together?

Looks like he would be a good buy - but even if we sign this guy plus Goodwillie and Petrovic we will struggle if we dont sign a proven 15+ goals a season striker..... but lets hope that signing is on the way..... someone with a source please say it will happen !!!
