Rovers linked with Arsenal Keeper Emilliano Martinez. Tosin Adarabioyo from Man City another named mentioned. While the latter may happen i am dubious about signing players from the top six premier league teams. Casey Palmer was underwhelming last season. Sorry but it seems other clubs next big thing prove to be anything but when in Rovers colours. Rovers should be chasing the perminent signing of Harrison Reed. Yes we have too many midfeilders but some need to be moved on to make way for players of Harrison Reeds quality. I am sure there are a lot of old head free agent central defenders out there who can do a job for Rovers for a season.

At this point I will take any serviceable centreback, just so there is depth.

BLACKBURN TARGET BORMUTH

Blackburn are interested in striking a deal to sign German centre-back Robin Bormuth, Sky Sports News understands.

The 23-year-old plays for Fortuna Dusseldorf in the Bundesliga, where he made 10 appearances last season.

Rovers have agreed a season-long loan deal with Manchester City for youngster Tosin Adarabioyo but the move has stalled, so the club are now exploring other targets and Bormuth is among them.

If it's in the budget and he is willing to come here, I am for it. He is 23, so I don't think maturity is much of an issue. Plus, there is room for growth.

The last player we signed from a German club, was imo one of the best Rovers signings of all time -Chris Samba. If this guy is half as good............

....poor Jermaine Jones and Yildray Basturk......

edit: :lol:, I'd like to say I was working back towards Santa Cruz... but honestly I'd forgotten that's where he came from.

Joe Nuttall is a big lad, maybe we should just try him in goal.

Anyway, the East Anglian Daily Times seem to think the Ipswich 'keeper is on his way to Millwall.
talks are at an advanced stage for Bialkowski to join Championship club Millwall on loan, with Lions striker Tom Elliott joining the Blues on loan in exchange.
Sun journalist Alan Lying Bastard Noxin has tonight reported that Bialkowski to Blackburn, with Nuttall joining Town, is a 'possible alternative'.

Sounds like Adarabioyo is set to come on a season long loan. Should be announced tomorrow I expect.
