Hossam Ghaly has claimed Blackburn are after his signature following his loan spell at Derby.

The Egyptian midfielder has shunned a move to Derby County permanently after they were relegated with a record low Premier League points.

The 26-year-old wants to stay in the Premier League and admits he has offers from a number of clubs, in England and abroad.

‘Blackburn want to sign me. I have offers from other Premier League sides in addition to a Hertha Berlin bid but I haven’t chosen my next destination yet,’ Ghaly told skysportsnews.

Ghaly is now back with Tottenham Hotspur but he is surplus to requirements there.

‘I enjoy playing in the Premier League and I would love to stay there,’ he added.

  • I think he is better than some suggest as he put in a good showing against us at Ewood this season… however attitude remains suspect.

  • Hes a decent player but a bit of a prima donna whinger, Italy is the perfect place for him, not ewood park!

  • The only attitude u have to worry about is that of a versatile hard hungry full of potential Central Midfielder. Think he showed attitude any team will want when he had his teeth kicked in and still played. Blackburn A Great place for him AND SURE HE WILL GIVE YOU HIS ALL .

  • No dn’t want him not evry good rubbish attitude will upset the camp, alrady trying to do it with this speculation, dont want him at all.

  • Oh God, I was there watching Rovers at White Hart Lane when he threw his shirt on the floor in front of Jol and marched down the tunnel. I thought he was a cretin then and my opinion still hasn’t changed. Still, he might not join, he might take one look at our training methods and decide we’re not good enough ala Birmingham.

  • I cant imgine that Rovers would want him, Maybe its a smokescreen on the long term target ( if you believe the papers ) of Huddlestone. He must have talent but I dont think he’s the kind of midfielder we need, we are desperate for a creative one, just something different at times to change the play

  • James Harper? You have got to be kidding!! On the topic of Ghaly, I think he is a good player. Love the comments from Pharo – I take it you are Egyptian, I know from my holiday there last year that you all think the world of him and Mido and some even seemed offended when I suggested that Mido was overweight and unfit!! So I am not surprised by your comments – I dont think Brummies or the Cockneys woudl agree

  • I respect your opinion Wellsy but I beg to differ. Would give us the extra verve needed and compliment a holding player very well. He is a goal scoring midfielder when playing for a top 7-8 side who would score 10 a season… none of our CM’s have managed that this season. what we miss from the middle of the park is a steady goalscorer.

  • If Villa are willing to spend £7 Million on a player Chelsea got for free 11 months ago, and has hardly played all season, i say let them.

  • I agree – £7m on Sidewell is ridiculous for an average player – you could get the same player in France or Spain for £2m

  • A figure of 2.5 Million for Ghaly seems to be floating around the web at the moment, which is about 1 Million too much.

  • pharo – are you Ghaly’s agent? I saw him get his teeth kicked out, and I think when playing he is fairly good, I think Hughes could sort his attitude problem out too – the question is do we need him? He can play right wing back or centre mid. I haven’t seen enough of him to know how good he is, only the flashpoints in his career! If Hughes wants him, I trust his judgment.
