Blackburn Rovers have got former Manchester City and Portsmouth striker at Brockhall as he looks to win a deal at Ewood Park.

Sam Allardyce has decided to run the rule over the Zimbabwean after papers linked Benjani with moves to obscure corners of the globe.

The good news is that Benjani wouldn’t cost abean in transfer fees as money bags city released him.

The bad news is that he is used to very high wages, something he certainly won’t be getting at Ewood Park (in footballing terms anyway!).

Zimbabwean Benjani spent his first day at Rovers’ Brockhall training ground on Tuesday.

  • I like the sound of this… if we get decent little fee for JR and sign Benjani FREE!!, as well as buy another striker we will be looking much better for the new season. Hopefully Benjani has realistic wage demands bearing in mind Man City have been offering ridiculous money to players.

  • He’s asking for 13k a week, aswell as a 5k appearance fee. So if we offload Roberts (whose wage is significantly higher) we will have extra money for another striker + extra wages (which appears to have been a stumbling block in the past!) things are looking up, great bit of dealing by the fat man!

  • Lads, come over to Vital Everton and vote on our poll – “Who will finish 4th” – and don’t be afraid to visit the article and have a bit of banter with rival fans!

  • Not overly excited about this as it’s like swapping one Roberts for another. If he does stay i hope Roberts goes ASAP to free up cash for a quality striker!

  • If we sell Roberts for a million pounds and sign Benjani for free, it’s not a bad idea after all. If he can score 10 a season, he’ll be another Big Sam bargain.
