Blackburn Rovers defender Ryan Nyambe will be leaving the club this summer after a lengthy impasse over a new deal at Ewood Park, the Lancashire Telegraph has reported.
Blackburn Rovers have seen a few contract sagas drag out over the course of the past few months.
Along with Nyambe, club captain Darragh Lenihan and Joe Rothwell‘s situations have been ongoing for some time now. Both the Irishman and the dynamic midfielder have since seen their departures confirmed though, and now, Nyambe looks set for an exit too.
The Lancashire Telegraph is reporting that the Namibian international is poised to leave Blackburn Rovers this summer.
There seemed to be a glimmer of hope at one point after it emerged that the player had re-engaged with talks over a possible stay, but the failure to agree new terms will mean Nyambe heads for pastures new this summer.
A new start…
Should Nyambe move on as reported, he will be given the chance to test himself away from Ewood Park for the first time.
The right-sided star has been with Blackburn Rovers from a young age. The Katima Mulilo native made his way through the club’s youth academy before going on to make his breakthrough on the senior stage, playing 199 times for the first-team.
Now though, a new beginning awaits, so it will be interesting to see where Nyambe lands.
As for Blackburn Rovers, their attention will turn to finding a replacement. Preferably, they’ll be able to pick out a player that can operate either as a right-back or wing-back.
The early stages of Jon Dahl Tomasson’s reign has supporters excited for the future, but recruitment will need to be spot on if he is to take Blackburn Rovers to the next level.
