Khizanishvili Signs New Contract
Blackburn Rovers defender Zurab Khizanishvili signed a new three-year contract to stay at Ewood Park.
The 26-year-old Georgian International skipper will now stay with the club (contracted with them at least) until 2011, and has signed this contract despite being limited to merely a handful of appearances this season, making only three starts.
The fact that he has signed this contract despite this is promising, as it shows he does want to be here and is also a good sign for the future, as he is still only 26 so has plenty of time ahead of him, so he must know he has a role to play, and quite possibly a major one at that.
Meanwhile, as one player commits his future, the Ewood future of another remains uncertain as it is understood that a German Bundesliga club wants Maceo Rigters, but only on loan.
24-year-old Rigters, who arrived with VERY big hopes last summer from NAC Breda for a bargain amount has struggled to make any kind of impact, and has rarely featured this season so it is expected that he will go out on loan before the transfer window ends, and most likely for the remainder of the season. Several Championship clubs have shown and interest, with an interest from clubs his native Netherlands also being mooted, we can now apparently add Germany to the list?
