Former Three Lions defender Wes Brown is set to join Blackburn Rovers, according to reports.

The Englishman’s talks with the club were confirmed by Coach Owen Coyle. Coyle told BBC Radio: “As soon as I get the green light from the owners that I can get that over the mine, I’ll pursue it vigorously. The proposal has been sent, it’s just to come back with a yes or no. We kick on from there.”

Wes Brown, 36, started his career at Manchester united. He started with the youth setup before breaking into the senior team in the 1996/97 season. He moved away to Sunderland in 2011 but remains unattached this season after his exit from the Premier League. Rovers have been linked with a transfer, and Coyle admitted that it is now up to the management to allow the deal. Continue reading WES BROWN BACK TO BLACKBURN ROVERS


The Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean has said that he expects the Swedish defender Martin Olsson to be fully committed with the club and their aspirations to return to the Premier league. The Swedish defender Martin Olsson immediately handed a transfer request following the relegation of the club from the top flight of English football. However, no club has been able to secure the services of the left back, who was one of the impressive players for the club in an otherwise poor season. A number of clubs including the European champions Chelsea were interested in securing his signature.

However, the player was unable to complete a move away from the club due to a groin injury, which has also forced him to miss the start of the new Championship season. Despite not being featured for the club so far, the manager Steve Kean expects the player to give his full commitment as long as he is a Blackburn player. The club has been one of the top spending clubs in the championship this season, as they target a quick return to the Premier league. The player is expected to cost around £ 10 million for the interested parties.

“We were getting mixed signals. I spoke to Martin many times and he said he wanted to get back in the team, then you have agents or agents on behalf of other agents saying his agent had told them he was desperate to get away. You can only speak with the player and when they tell you they want to get their head down and stay at the club, then that is good news,” said Kean regarding the future of one of his best players. Blackburn have made a good start to the new season and are currently second in the table.

The Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean has said that he is extremely worried about the fitness of the striker Colin Kazim-Richards. The 25-year-old was a summer signing from Turkey and he has proven to be a major hit with the club. He has scored two goals in as many matches for the club in the Championship. He recently secured the winner against Hull city in the 1-0 victory. However, he had to be taken off in the final few minutes of the match after suffering an injury. It appeared to be serious and as a result of it, the manager Steve Kean is extremely worried about the fitness of striker.

The Blackburn manager Steve Kean is under enormous pressure to deliver the results at Ewood Park after being largely responsible for the club’s relegation from the Premier league last season. He has been given significant transfer funds to improve the squad in the summer. However, he failed to impress the Blackburn fans in the opening match of the Championship season against Ipswich town – a match in which the club could only get a 1-1 draw. The 1-0 win over, though, could not have come at a much better time for the manager, but he is worried about the fitness of the star striker Colin Kazim-Richards.

“He felt a little strain just on the outside of his knee, so hopefully that won’t be a bad one because the last thing we would want is another injury to the strikers. What I’ve said, and I think it’s very important, is we’re trying to be respectful to clubs that own the players that we’re bidding for. If it’s a ‘no, and please don’t bid again and go away’ then I think we’ll try somewhere else because we’re trying to improve the squad right up until the deadline,” said Steve Kean.


Blackburn manager Steve Kean has said that the club and their players should start to believe themselves following the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa during the weekend. Blackburn Rovers are in a precarious position in the table, just a place above the relegation zone. There are currently floating above the relegation zone only based on goal difference and there is a possibility that they may once again slip back into the bottom three. That has been a lot of animosity towards Steve Kean ever since he took over from Sam Allardyce. A lot of the animosity was justified during the earlier part of the campaign, but despite selling a lot of high-profile players, Steve Kean has still managed to get Blackburn above the relegation zone.

Speaking after the match against Aston Villa, the manager has said that it is time for the Blackburn players and coaching staff to deliver the results for the fans. There are only a few matches left in the season, while it will be even more tough for Blackburn since there are only a few home games left for them. Steve Kean has said that Blackburn Rovers should be targeting before matches in order to get away from the relegation zone. They did exactly that during the weekend where they managed to come back from behind to draw with Aston Villa.

“From our point of view, Chris never withdrew his transfer request. He wanted to go, he made that quite public. On a positive side, now we know everyone we have in the dressing room wants to be here. We will all be pulling together. We wish Chris all the best, he was very vocal in public about wanting to leave and he’s got his wish,” Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean said after the departure of Christopher Samba during the weekend.
