Two weeks ago, Sun reporter Alan Nixon said that two France-based defenders had told their respective clubs they wanted to leave for Blackburn Rovers.
Now the Lancashire Telegraph are reporting that Blackburn boss Owen Coyle would love to have one of them at the club. That player is RC Lens defender Abdoul Ba, who Coyle says: “He is one that I would like to bring in to the club, I have made no secret of that. t will come down to an agreement between the two clubs, and the finances involved, and that’s where we’re at with it.”
Blackburn have shown interest in 6ft 7in Mauritainian defender Ba before, having an initial bid rejected back in August, and with the 14-cap international now having said that he wants to come into English football with Blackburn, then you’d think that his arrival would be more of a formality needing a mere nod and a transfer agreement.
However, as Coyle intimates above, there is still that agreement needed between the two clubs before the left-sided, Mauritanian man-mountain is a Blackburn player.
