Blackburn Rovers are trailing Bulgarian youngster Ivelin Popov, if newspapers reports are to be believed anyway.

The suggestion is that Rovers manager Mark Hughes has flown the 20-year-old over from Bulgaria for talks with the view of a summer transfer to Ewood Park from his current club Liteks Lovech. A quick search on the player saw me find out that he is understood to a fiery character, and one that isn’t afraid to have an outburst on or off the pitch, with him also known as a womaniser!!! As for his footballing ability he is understood to be a winger in the mould of David Bentley, and can also play as a supporting striker.

The Bulgarian International (he made his debut last year) has previously trained with Feyenoord for several months and was mooted with a move to Manchester City in the January transfer window.

  • He certainly sounds an interesting character!!! If Sparky likes him then he’ll be good enough for me that much I do know, even if I don’t really know much else about him.

  • ah the randomness lol. Darn it, when is he gonna sign up another aussie lol, he can stay at my house if he wants to

  • Well this is a little left-field. First Domochiyski or whatever it was and now this lad. Hughes is liking the Bulgarians. Still we’ll see what comes of it.

  • Seems strange to say the least, but Sparky does pull some rabbits out of the hat doesn’t he, but then again this could just ne the newspapers pulling a rabbit out of thin air lol!

  • I think he is casting net further a field as Eastern Europeans seem to cost less. If it works, again it is a masterstroke, however this is merely specualtion that could turn into more.

  • We need vast amounts of pace.luk at united n arsenal theyreve got pace everywhere.i like petrov hes works his bottom off rfor man city if we cud get somenoe like him
