Published Add your comment

Blackburn Rovers are well on the way to acquiring Argentine attacker Mariano Pavone, according to Sky Sports.

The deal is said to be finalised and ready to sign, after reports claimed a medical and weeklong talks proved successful.

The 29-year-old striker is expected to sign a deal that would keep him at Ewood Park for three years in the coming days.


Pavone’s British agent, Barry McIntosh, said: "Mariano is delighted to get his chance in English football, he has spoken to several clubs but he was particularly impressed by Steve Kean."

"Steve made him feel very welcome and explained his plans, and Mariano was delighted with what he heard.

"He is now looking forward to the next chapter with an ambitious club like Blackburn."

Pavone will join Blackburn Rovers for free, as his Real Betis contract has expired in Spain.

Blackburn boss Kean is expected to showcase his new striker at Ewood Park on Monday in time to travel to Austria to face TSG 1899 Hoffenheim on July 21.
