Rekik set for Rovers loan move
Rovers are set to announce the arrival of defender Karim Rekik on loan from Manchester City.
Rekik has just announced on his twitter account that he is set for the move (that Vital Blackburn broke to you in the forums last week) as Rovers look to bolster their defensive ranks.
The youngster tweeted - 'Happy to say that I'm going on loan to Blackburn Rovers and be part of the team. Hope to win many games and learn for my future at Man City.'
Rekik can operate both at centre back and at left back, but it is stated by City that his preferred position is in the middle of defence.
