Rovers Look To Brazilians For Help

National First Division strugglers, Blackburn Rovers, who have just relocated from East London to Durban, are looking to bolster their squad during the January transfer window by grabbing some top quality individuals, including a few Mamelodi Sundowns' U23s.

Sundowns' head scout, Shawn Bishop, confirmed Rovers' interest in players from their Safa Second Division side, M Tigers.

"Blackburn have asked us to supply their U23s," he told Soccer-Laduma. "We probably have seven youngsters that are now ready for the NFD, including a goalkeeper. Rovers might take two or three from that group. Their representative wanted them yesterday (Sunday) but it's not going to be possible. I can only get players to Durban on the 2nd or 3rd January 2014."

The Brazilians currently have 11 talented youngsters plying their trade at five different second tier outfits, but with left back Bongani Fakude and Mpho Pandoza, a centre back, experiencing money problems at Roses United, they could end up at Amarover.

"On Christmas day I received calls from the Roses pair who both told me they haven't been paid since September. I may pull them away from Roses for Rovers but that's with our legal department," Bishop concluded.

In addition, Blackburn's new owner, Nino Chidoni, has a few faces up his sleeve but is not saying much at this stage.

"I want to sign three good PSL players on loan," he said. "As much as I want to give my squad a fair chance, this is a business for me. I'm about success so we're already talking, i know Clive (Barker), and the guys from AmaZulu."
