Rovers set to take Pole chance
POLISH international goalkeeper Grzegorz Sandomierski will start a three-day trial at Blackburn Rovers today – to pave the way for Mark Bunn’s Ewood Park exit.
The 22-year-old Genk stopper was due in England last night and is being lined up as Bunn’s replacement, with Norwich negotiating a fee for the Rovers reserve keeper.
Sandomierski’s arrival looks like being the start of a busy week for Rovers as they look to fine tune their squad ahead of the close of the transfer window.
Having all but conceded defeat in their pursuit of Huddersfield hot shot Jordan Rhodes, boss Steve Kean remains desperate to land a striker before Friday night’s deadline.
It is understood enquiries will be made as to the availability of Southampton striker Ricky Lambert but sources close to the Saints have told the Lancashire Telegraph Rovers will be firmly rebuffed.
Sunderland teenager Connor Wickham is interesting Kean, on a potential loan deal, but it is understood the club are searching for a more experienced goal scorer, with a significant cash pot available to land one.
Swansea City striker Luke Moore is also on the radar, with enquiries made about him over the weekend, but Rovers are only in the market for one more striker – unless one of their current forward line move on.
Rovers are also hoping to add another centre back to the squad.
Sandomierski has won three full caps for Poland and was included in their Euro 2012 squad this summer.
He signed a five-year deal with Belgian oufit Racing Genk in 2011 but spent some of last season on loan at former club Jagiellonia Bialystok.
Providing he impresses and Rovers able to agree a fee with Genk, Sandomierski is expected to replace Bunn, who has handed in a transfer request in the wake of a rejected bid from Norwich City.
