Tromso defender Tore Reginiussen will undergo a medical at Blackburn next week with a view to a January transfer, according to the Norwegian club.

The 22-year-old, who can also play in midfield, is set to arrive in Lancashire on Sunday and spend a few days with the club after impressing Rovers' scouts with recent displays. A winter move would see Reginiussen follow in the footsteps of Morten Gamst Pedersen, who made the switch between the two clubs four years ago.

Tromso director Tom Bendiksen told his club's official website: "We are going to facilitate a transfer for Tore, and it might well be to Blackburn. We have a strong and positive relationship with that club."

Sporting director Morten Kraemer added: "It is gratifying that Tromso have players who are considered attractive by major European clubs."

The highly-rated centre-back won his first Norway cap earlier this year and scored his first international goal in the 1-1 draw against the Republic of Ireland in August.
