AZ Alkmaar are weighing up a move for Blackburn defender Andre Ooijer, but are wary of upsetting the balance of a squad which finished the first half of the season top of the Eredivisie.

Holland international Ooijer, 34, has been a regular for Blackburn this season, but AZ believe he could be tempted by a return to his homeland.

"From a footballing perspective we would like to sign him for the club," technical director Marcel Brands told Voetbal International.

However, Brands admitted they would first need to work out how Ooijer would fit in the squad before seeking a deal.

"But the problem is that you don't sign Andre for the bench, so then you must put another player on the bench," he added.

"Maybe that would result in disruption rather than calm."
