Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes will decide whether to sanction a move for striker Valeri Domovchiyski later this week.

The Bulgarian Under 21 international has been handed another chance to impress the Blackburn boss after his five-day trial spell at Brockhall last week was disrupted.

Poor weather and a disjointed training schedule made it difficult for Hughes to properly assess Domovchiyski last week, so he invited the 21-year-old to stay on for a second week, which he accepted.

Now the Levski Sofia hit-man is hoping to hear if he has done enough to seal a permanent switch to the Premier League at some point over the next few days.

Rovers have already shrewdly negotiated a transfer fee with Levski, believed to be in the region of £1.5 million, which prevents the Bulgarians from upping the ante should Hughes decide to make Domovchiy-ski’s stay a permanent one. Another clever move from renowned negotiator Sparky.

The rest is now down to the player, who has three days left to convince the Rovers boss that he would be an asset to his squad.

  • Not so sure sas mate. As he said he didnt get a good look at him last week so its good he wants to be sure before making his mind up.

  • …… maybe further north and a bit eastward…… Anyways glad thats all over now *phew* (well ujntil the toons get a new manager in another 6months!!)

  • Yeah I think the past week has cast a shadow over Hughes proceedings so hopefully he can now dust himself down, prepare thoroughly for Sat and then look to recruit in the remaining days.

  • well if he can’t do it then sell him to us we will take anyone on the market right now as you and most of the league know if they can kick a ball qpr want them

  • hughes is a good judge of a good playr. if he is going to make it, you will get him, if he leaves, he wil probably fail

  • Sparky is a MASTER when it comes to judging a player. He knows the good from the bad, usually the good become VERY good at a knockdown price.

  • are bulgaria one of the countries that dont have automatic rights to work in another EU country? didnt know that i thought it was just romania and one other country like estonia or something like that!
    a loan would be good see what he can do then snap him up if he is any use!

  • No problems with work permit. He has almost 100% with U21 Bulgarian national team, so dont worry about it.
    I think his club will deny a loan request :/
