Speculation: Martin Olsson (Blackburn Rovers)


Recommended Posts

Paul Lambert is ready to pay £2.5million AND Stephen Warnock to lure Martin Olsson from Blackburn.

Aston Villa boss Lambert will rival Stoke in the battle to sign Sweden international left-back Olsson, who has handed in a transfer request at Ewood Park following Rovers' relegation from the Premier League.

And Lambert is prepared to throw in Warnock - a Lancashire lad and a Blackburn player from 2007-09 - as part of the deal after telling the former England defender he has no future at Villa.

Warnock was left out of Lambert’s squad for Saturday’s opening day defeat at West Ham and has only a year left on his existing deal.

The 30-year-old is also interesting Sunderland, now managed by former Villa boss Martin O’Neill, while several Championship clubs have asked to take him on loan for the season.

O’Neill needs a specialist left-back following the news that Kieran Richardson wants to leave the north-east club for family reasons.

And Warnock would prefer to remain in the Premier League rather than return to Ewood Park, four years after Villa paid Blackburn £8m for him.

Yes to Olsson, but I'm surprised at the love N'Zonzi gets by some people here. I don't think he's all that and he's a dirty player with a bad attitude from the times I've seen him. I think we need more focus on a left-back and a creative midfielder at the moment.
