Olsson - Championship not an option

Olsson - Championship not an option

Rovers star Martin Olsson is looking to move away from Ewood Park this summer - his agent has confirmed.

Olsson has been at Ewood Park since 2007 and has played in 88 games for the club after initially finding life in England tough.

But relegation into the Championship seems to have forced Olsson into thinking about moving on with his international ambitions and development meaning that he ideally wants a return to the Premier League.

Newcastle, Chelsea, Stoke and Galatasaray have all lodged an interest in the pacey left sided man who can play both left wing (ideally) and left back.

Martin's agent Martin Dahlin told the Lancashire Telegraph - "Of course he is happy that his brother is with him at Blackburn but on the other hand he has other things to think about."

"He has to keep on developing because he wants to keep his place in the Swedish national team. That means everything for him.

"I know the manager at Blackburn has said that he would like to keep all the players but playing in the Championship is not an option.

"He needs to play at the highest level to keep his place with the national team.

"There is already quite big interest in him. Five or six clubs are interested.

"There is interest from England and from other countries."

Another one bites the dust and this time it's a favourite of yours truly.
