Blackburn Rovers are understood to be working hard to clinch a deal for Koo Ja-cheol??

The South Korean International has claimed that Rovers are in negotiations with him after being impressed with him in a Friendly he played for South Korea last week against Latvia following an International training camp. The Jeju United midfielder has said that there is a 50-50 chance he’ll sign.

Koo said: “I know that negotiations are progressing. I think that it is 50-50.

“I know that someone from Blackburn watched the game against Latvia and I know that my agent and Blackburn start serious negotiations.


Personally I’m not sure that the midfielder would be given a work permit would he as the 20-year-old has only won five International caps so that would be an issue I think.

  • worth a gamble id say, cant be that bad if hes playing at international level. would say its a lot less than 50 – 50 though looking at the number of players weve had on trial

  • time for him to Mike J! This guy will have huge problems with his work permit unless the “exceptional talent” rule comes into effect!!!

  • Replacing experienced premiership players with more Mr No-body’s not exactly a recipe for survival, not the type of signings we need, we need quality experienced players that are up for a fight, We have a 6 million pound striker who has spent most of the season on the bench cos sam dnt want to rush him, so why buy another?? Unless he is bringing a south Korean billionaire with him, our resources are best spent elsewhere

  • Glen that’s a fair attitude but I would rather gamble on a half dozen Nzonzis and Van Heerdens than one Kalinic. As a club we have penny stock resources but a blue chip appetite. We have to shop for deals and that can only happen when we gamble a bit.

  • JT- do you know the guy? You were from Asia as well if I remember right, and if he is this big talent then you might know him 🙂 ….cheers

  • That would be a heck of a chant!!! ha ha. And I think this guy is being added to the squad not actually replacing anyone judging by his fee (i.e. very little) and the type of position he plays.
