Monaco defender hoping for Rovers switch

Blackburn have been surprisingly quiet in the transfer window so far, with owners Venky's yet to demonstrate their supposed financial clout.

Rovers boss Steve Kean will no doubt be looking to reinforce his squad after flirting with relegation, and with Phil Jones having swapped Ewood Park for Old Trafford.

A new partner for Chris Samba will be a summer priority for Keen and, inevitably, Blackburn have been linked with numerous possible acquisitions.


One player touted as a possible replacement for Jones is Monaco centre-back Cedric Mongongu who, according to his agent, has his fingers crossed over a potential move to Lancashire.

"He would like to join Blackburn Rovers," Christophe Mongai told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"There have been a lot of clubs interested in him, but yes, he wants to come to Blackburn and the Premier League. That is his wish.

"The two clubs are in discussions, and the player is in discussions with Monaco and Blackburn.

"We can't say anything has been sorted yet, but we hope it will be soon. Discussions between everyone will go on."

Mongongu, 22, is an international teammate of Rovers stalwart Samba and, like his Congo compatriot, is an imposing defender, unafraid to put his body on the line for the cause.
