Faye To Undergo Rovers Trial?!?!
Blackburn Rovers are interested in signing Charlton Athletic midfielder Amdy Faye, according to his agent.
Former Newcastle United midfielder Faye, who is currently on a season long loan deal with Glasgow Rangers from Charlton has been unable to command a regular place at Ibrox, so with Robbie Savage having left Ewood Park for Derby County it is understood that the Senegalese International is viewed as a possible replacement for Savage? His agent Willie McKay claims that Rovers are interested in getting him in on trial before deciding what to do, but he also claims that Rangers manager Walter Smith is reluctant to let him leave?
McKay told Skysports.com: "Blackburn are interested in Amdy and they are hoping he can join up with them for a few days training.
"At the minute, Walter Smith wants to keep him as he does not want to lose any players, but Amdy is keen to go.
"He has not had a chance at Rangers really as their midfield has been playing well and he wants to be playing on a regular basis.
"We will see what happens before the close of the transfer window."
However, FIFA rules look as though they could scupper any such deal, as he would be playing for his third club of the season, something that isn't allowed.
Rovers chairman John Williams told the Daily Record: "Faye has already played for Charlton and Rangers so the information I have is that it could not go anywhere at the moment.
"I don't think the change in the Fifa rule is relevant here. It is actually confusing because when you read it at first, the article mentions three clubs.
"But when you re-read the document, it states two.
"It is my understanding that this idea with Faye is going to be caught by the rules. That is where I am standing at the moment."
