A Rovers Bussman's Holiday!

A Rovers Bussman's Holiday!

As if Blackburn Rovers goalkeeping prospects weren't looking good enough another highly rated youngster has joined the academy ranks.

15-year-old Bjorn Bussman, already a regular in the under-17 Cologne side has made the switch to Ewood Park from the German club. Head of the FC Cologne youth academy Christoph Henkel said:

"He's going to go to England. We're not happy about it and we don't think it's the right decision. We made him a very good offer with a view to becoming a senior player. But Bjorn opted for Blackburn."

Bussman becomes the second promising goalkeeper to leave Cologne for England in recent times after Ron-Robert Zieler joined Manchester United last year.

If Bussman eventually signs a professional contract with Rovers we will have to pay Cologne compensation, if not we won't.

Jason Brown looks to be Brad Friedel's natural success but maybe Bussman will be Brown's…

On paper the next 20 years plus worth of goalkeeping is covered with what we currently have.
