Michael Laudrup has emerged as a surprise candidate for the vacant Blackburn job.

Most speculation pointed towards MK Dons boss Paul Ince being named as the man to succeed Mark Hughes but former Getafe coach Laudrup appears to be in the running after holding talks with Rovers chairman John Williams in Zurich.

"In 20 years of working in football I have not come across a chairman as impressive as John Williams," Laudrup´s agent Bayram Tutumlu told the Daily Telegraph.
