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.
