Blackburn Rovers are battling it out with two other clubs for the signature of highly sought after Scottish defender Steven Whittaker.
23-year-old Whittaker has been linked with Rovers before (as had his former Hibernian team-mate Scott Brown, who signed for Celtic for £4.4 million) and reports from the BBC are saying that Rovers are again trying to lure the right-back (a position MANY feel needs addressing!!!) to Ewood Park, but Rovers will have to battle with Middlesbrough and Glasgow Rangers for his signature.
Former Scottish Under-21 International's Whittaker and Brown are both highly rated in Scotland, with many clubs in England and Scotland having been linked to the pair. With one (Brown) having already moved on from Easter Road the other will also do the same in the next few days for an amount believed to be between £1.5 million and £1.8 million, with him holding talks with interest teams on Tuesday.
Whittaker's agent, Ken Anderson has told BBC Sport:
"A deal for the sale of the versatile player could be completed within the next few days."
Meanwhile other talk (in the Daily Star) is saying that Mark Hughes is eying up a move for Kansas City Wizards striker Eddie Johnson, currently playing in the MLS.
This WON'T happen as the American International had already turned down a move to Derby Country last week, saying then he would rather stay in American at this point in time, not forgetting the fact ANOTHER striker is NOT needed for sure now!!!
