blackburn rovers' adam wharton looks destined for the top

Blackburn Rovers star agrees £22m Premier League move, medical planned

Blackburn Rovers midfielder Adam Wharton will undergo a medical with Crystal Palace after a £22m agreement was reached, as per The Athletic.

Blackburn Rovers prized asset Wharton has been the subject of almost constant interest from the Premier League over the past year or so. He broke into the first-team after Jon Dahl Tomasson’s arrival and hasn’t looked back since.

Crystal Palace have been among his regular admirers and they’ve been in hot pursuit of the 19-year-old this month. After seeing a first bid knocked back, it emerged that a new £22m deal was on the table as they look to secure one of the Championship‘s top talents.

Now, it seems a deal is set to be completed. Writing on X, BBC Lancashire reporter Andy Bayes stated earlier today that an agreement was moving closer and Wharton was due to travel to London today.

David Ornstein of The Athletic has since confirmed a deal has been agreed. He adds that a medical will take place today once Wharton arrives in London, with the deal coming in at the previously reported £22m including add-ons.

 

A move awaits?

While it remains to be seen if an agreement can be finalised, things do look to be moving towards a conclusion regarding Crystal Palace’s pursuit of Blackburn Rovers star Wharton. Him heading down to London suggests matters could move quickly now, but time will tell what the next developments are.

Wharton’s importance to Tomasson’s side is clear to see. He’s started just about every league game this season, showcasing his talents in advanced and defensive midfield roles.

He’s a player destined for the top, hence the eye-catching £22m price tag reported. If a deal does come in at that price, it will give Blackburn Rovers a very welcome financial boost, though they won’t have much time at all to put the funds to use with the transfer window slamming shut this Thursday.
