Rovers to Start Haestad Talks?

Rovers to Start Haestad Talks?

Could it be that Kristofer Haestad will end up at Blackburn after all? If reports in the press are true, then yes.

Rune Hauge, Haestad`s agent, has claimed that Rovers have been in contact about Haestad. We all remember Morten Gamst Pedersen`s last minute plea to his close friend Haestad in January to convince him to come to Ewood and not Wigan. Alas, that fell on deaf ears and it would appear as though Gamst wasn`t wrong as Haestad endured a torrid few months at our neighbours, so much so that his loan was prematurely ended.

However, it would appear as though Rovers are back in for the young Norwegian starlet and band member of Gamst`s band.

Hauge is quoted as saying on Skysports:

"I can confirm that there is interest. I have talked to Blackburn recently and Kristofer is on their list. I would not be surprised if Rovers table an offer when the [transfer] window opens."

Haestad has been in tremendous form since returning to Norway and capped it off with a goal for the national side on Saturday. However, his experiences at Wigan could prove to be the stumbling block as a return to English football may not be appealing. He said:

"I am surprised that it comes up that fast, to move to England again is not something I am thinking about after what happened at Wigan."

Perhaps with the advice and friendship of Gamst, Rovers will be able to convince him his future lies at Ewood Park. A lot of this depends on whether or not Gamst stays but I would think it will help if he were to have a fellow boyband member at Ewood.

I have said all along that we should sign this lad and not for his singing ability! He would be the ideal replacement for Sav, who, lets face it, isn't getting any younger. Haestad is 23 and has energy in abundance. It may also be a key in keeping Gamst!

i really hope we pick up this kid. He prob will be much cheaper then koumas, and could possibly have a role in keeping pederson at the club

He couldn't cut it at Wigan - could he really do it at Rovers? Age is in his favour though. What about Bentley? All the slagging off we have been giving Jenas and he comes on instead of Bentley - shows to me that Maclaren doesn't have a clue. Funny thing was Jenas was played into a great position with the score at 1-0 and he cross was atrocious, Bentley would have done much better. Then Brazil equalised. Anyway well done England for holding Brazil reserves!!

I said exactly that Wellsy whilst watching the match. Had that been Bents, we can guarantee he would have found the man in the middle. JJ is just appaling and his cross sumed up his ability. As for Haestad. Yes he did struggle at Wigan but I feel it will be a very different story at Ewood.

I've rater Haestad for a long time and at one time (abou 2-3 years ago) United were looking at him as a viable replacement for Keane. He will only get better. £ games isnt enough to ajust to the Premiership game OR show what yyou are made of! Remember Bazza? He was terrible when he first got intothe Rovers engine room, only to gradually start showing his worth, then got an injury against Newcastle! Go get him Sparky!

if it will help keep Gamst at the club then I think it would be worth spending a couple of million pounds on him, as well if it will also help I will buy every ticket to their next gig. :)

This kid is excellent despite his ill fated stay at WIgan.. the even better news though is that if Gamst is bigging up Blackburn so much... the likelihood is that he will stay.

I think Gamst will stay should he sign. I am really excited about Haestad potentially coming. I wrote an article way back in Jan about my disappointment that he chose Wigan ahead of us. I now think he will be the first summer signing for Rovers!
