Hoffenheim confirm Rovers are in Ibisevic talks

Hoffenheim confirm Rovers are in Ibisevic talks

Rovers are making brisk progress in their pursuit of striking reinforcement after German club Hoffenheim confirmed that they have given Rovers chiefs the go ahead to speak to their forward Vedad Ibisevic.

The Ibisevic link has been in the public domain now for a few weeks but his transfer has become a very tangible possibility after Rovers asked permission to speak to the player.

'Blackburn Rovers are keen on Vedad Ibisevic, the chances to see him move are fifty-fifty,' Hoffenheim general manager Ernst Tanner said to Sky Sports.

'We have still to agree a transfer fee, anyway they have been asking us on the allowance to pick up contract negotiations with the player.'

The fee is rumoured to be around the £3.5 million mark and if completed would mark Rovers sixth summer signing (after the George John transfer completion) with Simon Vukcevic, Radosav Petrovic, David Goodwillie and Bruno Ribeiro already in the bag.

For those wondering, Myles Anderson doesn't count.

SK must be pretty convinced about him.. he's not exactly prolific and he's actually injured at the moment.. and a bit too old to be "one for the future" but the glass is half full so you never know :D

Good to see some movement but clearly this one is far from done.

Championship Cost Per Goal So Far In 2016/17

The end of the Championship campaign of 2016/17 is only a month and a bit away from fans across the country but as we go in to the remaining weeks of the campaign...

Positive Signs For Bennett

Bennett was positive of Blackburn being able to see off Lancashire rivals Preston heading into this game at Ewood Park after the Norwich and Fulham results.

Minor Graham Setback

Blackburn had to do without Danny Graham against Preston following the groin problem that forced him off against Fulham last week. He could return against Brighton next week.

Hugely Frustrating

Mowbray admitted Blackburn didn't start the game well against Preston but had then been the dominant side so was 'majorly disappointed' not to record a victory.
