Blackburn Rovers in talks over Kazim-Richards deal

Lancashire Telegraph: Colin Kazim-Richards Colin Kazim-Richards

BLACKBURN Rovers are attempting to conclude a permanent deal for Colin Kazim-Richards before the transfer window closes tomorrow after agreeing a fee with Galatasaray.

Kazim-Richards joined Rovers on loan in the summer and the club remain baffled at continuing reports in Turkey that Bursaspor are confident of signing the 26-year-old.

Rovers boss Michael Appleton is aiming to make three or four signings before the transfer window shuts at 11pm tomorrow, and wants one of those to be a permanent deal for Kazim-Richards.

Rovers have had a bid accepted by the Turkish side, thought to be between £500,000 and £750,000, and are now in talks with the player’s representatives.

The club are hopeful of finalising a four-year deal for the forward and Kazim-Richards said last week that he is happy to stay at Rovers after telling his parent club earlier this month that he did not want to cut his loan short.

Figures at Ewood Park are now waiting for owners Venky’s to give the green light over personal terms as they aim to finalise a deal.

Sources in Turkey continue to suggest that Bursaspor remain hopeful of signing Kazim-Richards, but Rovers have still heard nothing from Galatasaray about possible rival interest.

The agency representing the player have distanced themselves from quotes supposedly suggesting Kazim-Richards was on his way to Bursaspor, who yesterday signed defender Anton Ferdinand on loan from QPR.

In any case, the terms of Kazim-Richards’ season-long loan at Ewood mean Rovers would have to give permission for the deal to be cut short early.

Even if Kazim-Richards signs, Appleton remains keen to bring in a right winger before the deadline after Josh King suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury in Saturday’s 3-0 win at Derby.

The Norwegian could potentially be out for a number of weeks. One player likely to leave Rovers today though is midfielder Diogo Rosado, who looks set to return to Portugal to join Benfica on loan.

The 22-year-old has made only three appearances since moving to Ewood from Benfica’s Lisbon rivals Sporting in the summer.

  • Rovers’ FA Cup fifth round tie at Arsenal will take place on Saturday, February 16 at 3pm. The game has not been selected for live television.

Seems hasty to be shipping out Rosado so soon? If Benfica want him, he must be decent...

Excellent news about Kazim-Richards but feel bad for Rosado. The club fought tooth-and-nail to sign him but he's not really had a chance to prove himself, a common occurrence at Rovers in recent years. It'll be interesting to see which right-winger Appleton goes after, any ideas?

Hmmmm. He' already stated that he want to bring in 3 or 4 players, but from what he is saying, recalling Orr and making CKR's deal a permanent one seem to count a two of those. Seems a bit Keanesq to me.

Kazim shows the guts to stay upfront and he is powerfull. He is adjusted with rovers system and getting attention on him as a good player.

Good he choose Blackburn and stay with dream of playing at the top level.

Hope venky agree the fees and he could be a best player with Rhodes and Rovers.

What is the news on adding three more to club ??? another 24 hours !

Yes keeping Richards would be a decent move as Best is not ready to come back yet and we need three strikers min anyway. I reckon one of the three we may bring in will be Bentley on the right side. Then all we need is another midfielder and a central defender as cover (unless Givet settles his differences).

hang on a second...when i first read through the above report i nearly got exited, but then i re-read it and found that Quote"Rovers boss Michael Appleton is aiming to make three or four signings before the transfer window shuts at 11pm tomorrow, and wants one of those to be a permanent deal for Kazim-Richards." from that i take it that apart from CKR if that deal goes through, that all the rest (if any) will be on loan.....we're the money you promised us Venkys?, why are we not making permanent signings?, why did we not get in for steve warnock, who looks like he's on his way to leeds and in my opinion will have a lot to offer in this league.....this is why people get frustrated...

Muggins. Making loan moves is the best thing to do in January. Prices for players are always inflated as clubs don't want to lose them mid season. Taking on loans with a view to a permanent move in the summer makes far more sense.

I agree that, given our position, loan moves make more sense. However, crankitup has read it all wrong anyway. This article doesn't suggest anything about the other signings being loans, it just says that Appleton wants to sign Kazim-Richards permanently. You know, seeing as he's currently on loan.

If he doesn't fit in the team then there's no place for him here at Blackburn. I'd rather he gets shipped out, cuts the wage bill and Appleton brings in a player in another position where he is needed. We have way too many midfielders at the moment so some of them need to go...

The only players bought in January are players who's contract is expiring in the summer, players who the club has shortlisted for a long time or players who've been made available.

Loans are a safer bet now, in case we fork out good money for "3 or 4 players" and they turn out to be flops.

Good luck to Rosado, struggled with the physicality of the league when given game time.

CKR deal made permanent is good business, hope it goes through. I still feel adding Marlon King would be useful, just in case Best re-injures himself on his return.

Bentley would be open to a move, but his wages are £50,000 a week. If he is loaned in then Spurs will need to pay a good chunk (up to 50%) of his wages.

are they gonna shift some lads out? Robinson can go (kean and the new lad are good enough). Dunn, Dann, Givet....surely that must give some money to spend, even if it's on decent loan players. Other Championship sides are picking up decent loan players, why not us? MA was praised by SAF, why not use the connection and go get some of their players on loan!

KR is ok. been slow to fit in but his physicality is useful in the league. Has the the burning desire, I doubt!

Richards has played extremely well the last 2 matches, makes sense to sign him for 500,000 when his loan deal is in doubt. Seems relatively cheap for these days, very ordinary players can be sold for much more.

Having said that I agree with the posts about getting players in on loan instead of buying in the transfer window, very few really good players move in the January window, if they are any good their clubs want to keep them. Look at the modest lot we got last year!

The only players bought in January are players who's contract is expiring in the summer, players who the club has shortlisted for a long time or players who've been made available.

Loans are a safer bet now, in case we fork out good money for "3 or 4 players" and they turn out to be flops.

Good luck to Rosado, struggled with the physicality of the league when given game time.

CKR deal made permanent is good business, hope it goes through. I still feel adding Marlon King would be useful, just in case Best re-injures himself on his return.

I feel Galatasaray may have leaked information (poss made up?) of another bid to try and force Rovers' hands to tie up a deal ASAP as they will need the funds due to recent purchase of Sneijder and potential buy of Drogba. If it is for the fee mentioned we may as well do it anyway to avoid any problems in the summer.

Another who is being cheeky is Andy Cryer, has Appleton actually said he would count this as one of the potential 3-4 sigings? If there is no quote then don't make assumptions. Also for those getting worked up Appleton has said if he can't bring in the players he wants then he won't bring in others who are available for the sake of it so potentially there may be no signings. Just be patient and wait and see.

What the hell Singh brings to the club I will never know. The fact he gets paid that sickening amount of wages really is astonishing. The bigger joke is when he actually attempts to 'Globally advice' his advice is shocking!

Muggins. Making loan moves is the best thing to do in January. Prices for players are always inflated as clubs don't want to lose them mid season. Taking on loans with a view to a permanent move in the summer makes far more sense.
I agree and if on loan the player has to prove himself/try harder for a contract the big problem is we have 15+ to many players on the books. Who knows maybe shaggy nuts is in Portugal signing half a dozen as we speak!!!! OMG that's why he has gone quiet.

How many loan players are we allowed at anyone time in the Chumpionship? I hope he gets Bentley whatever the Spuds fans say he can deliver excellent crosses for Rhodes and co but I think we may be looking to high and should be looking at West Ham reserves and Portsmouth players as they wont want to spend too much brass.I hear that we are swopping Robinson for a West Ham midfielder I have never heard of.

CKR will be a good acquisition, but can we now please get rid of Orr, Vukcevic, and last and least Goodwillie! To release extra funds for wages. Plus either play the likes of Nuno Gomes, and the younger lads such as Nunes and Jordan Slew or allow them to leave as well instead of letting them continually drain our finances. I also wouldn't want Robbo to go but the club needs to either support him or let him leave. DudleyRover

A proven buy in CKR. Get it done.

Plays for the shirt every time(we all have a off day from time to time)

Whenever I've witnessed him plying his trade for the B&W's - no problem, and he can score a goal or two too.

No more comfort zones for these players anymore with the new Sports Scientist in place. Players will respond to positive input thus, we, as supporters will see the benefits over the course of time. Good enough.

Bring in Bentley should that be possible ? A quality individual that will ramp up the game for BRFC. Good enough.

Lots of activity down at the good ship Ewood looking mostly positive for the way forward. Good enough.
I would be more concerned if it was stagnant and dull, but it isn't. Good enough.

Let the professionals go about their business, and we the supporter, go about our business of supporting. Good enough.

Out on the pitch is when the real business commences then we can all have our point of view. Good enough.

He scores when he wants, he scores when he wants - Jordan Rhodes, he scores when he wants. Good enough.

Looking forward to a good match Saturday now that O'Driscoll as got them organized, and we can give Mr. Cryer some stick at 16.50hrs either way. Good enough.

Should Robbo leave then he goes with my good wishes. He deserves respect for his time down at the good ship Ewood. Never hides and knew of the supporters hurt. Good enough.

Just a thought or two folks. Good enough.

You've GOT to be joking! We'd be better signing Ronald McDonald upfront, at least he's probably more accurate in front of goal. Please somebody explain to me why we would want to make the worst player in our squad a permenant fixture? He has absolutely no place in the squad and has proved it time and time again throughout the season. The only decent game he's ever had in blue & white was his last game, a one off against a poor team and now hes hailed as our new Jason Roberts. Frankly - the man is greedy, doesn't pass when the option to shoot is on, he's slow (never could beat the last man), he's lazy, he has ZERO ball control and his knock-on's are non existant. He may gather 95% of ariel balls placed in his direction, but how many of his knock downs are successful? 1%? 2%?

As much as I admire your adulation of the Venky and India in your posts I do think it is a little premature all things BRFC ?

I don't believe you fully understand the depth of feeling and hurt that Venky have caused to many, many thousands of supporters of BRFC that go way back generations with your bombastic approach to this volatile situation for all concerned ?

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi was not theoretical but one of pragmatism something Venky should heed, in my humble opinion ?

I doubt very much that he would best pleased at Venky's near destruction of a 136 year old institution that serves it's local community with distinction ?

So I ask this - when Venky begins the process of viewing BRFC as a bedrock of it's local community, and not only a business the process of criticism, in the main, will cease.

'With great power comes great responsibility' as stated and attributed to Francois -Marie Arouet aka Voltaire.

This is a view, if not articulated by many, many Blackburn Rovers supporters. Owners they maybe, but we are the guardians of our club, which in itself should never be underestimated by any owner of a cherished and vital institution.

In my view concerning the 'snowball' incident I have great respect for the husband, who took the incident, and figuratively speaking, at face value. This in my book goes a long way to building bridges with the disenchanted and disenfranchised supporters. I hope that this will see an end to the wholesale hostility with this incident ? For it is not that I condone the action, but wholly understand why it happened, and in the bigger scheme of things can be thankful that it appears to be the end result of two years of utter mismanagement.

So, India is beginning the process of becoming, in your words, a economic superpower thus I pose the question; are the owners of this football club able to carry forward that of the 136 year history that served US so well ?

All this upsets me and indicates how far as a club we've fallen. People getting excited about signing a half a million pound player from the back waters of European football.
I always count Rovers fans as some of the most level headed and with a good understanding of the whole football package.
Do your sums , players sold - players bought. You'll see a plus total. Further evidence of asset stripping. Appletons here to overseas signing of cheap / free players who might be half decent while the big earners or those with a view are slowly got rid of.
Why can't others see it?

Venkys need a cult hero like Shearer ,Garner or Sutton to take Singh job to win over fans.Singh and Hendry must be sacked as more and morefans are staying away.Football is an entertaining industry, to fill the theatre which is half empty every week.Venky must live up to their promises and carry this club forward that served the people of Blackburn/Darwen and other part of East Lancashire well over 136 years of history.

So, you acknowledge that 'hope' is in your view that Venky have finally understood that dismantling, or as is viewed, ripped the heart out of Blackburn Rovers Football Club very nearly resulted in anarchy, which the good folk of this region have had to endure ?

The Shebby Singh appointment was one of many disappointing decisions thrust upon Blackburn Rovers Football Club, which possibly compounded an already fraught situation resulting in the now well documented saga ?

I would surmise that each individual(supporter
) have their own threshold or tolerance to this situation, and in that, again, I would surmise, a certain % could very well be that which we term 'plastic supporter' ? But, I would hazard a guess here that the vast majority who have remained steadfast in staying from Ewood are/were dedicated, ardent supporters of BRFC ?

Who can really say what the actual reason is for abstaining, but it is fair to say that the utter shambles that as developed down at Ewood as most certainly not helped this situation that OUR club finds itself in ?

The bigger question remains - can Venky ever encourage these missing folk back ? Is it that the good folk of East Lancashire really wish to see money thrown at BRFC or is that they just wish to see a pragmatic approach or a down to earth approach that upholds the good name of BRFC ?

Your assertion that Venky acquired BRFC due to the towns large Indian population is wild, and suggests with the figures you give - 30,000, that these people would automatically descend onto Ewood Park thus alienating a vast majority of long time supporters which, even in the minds of Venky, would be a disaster for the town and its populace creating division ? So, I would say with some confidence that Venky did not acquire BRFC on that basis.

Venky have arrived at the realization that throwing money at football is no guarantee to success. Only an astute business man, such as the likes of the late J.Walker, deriving from the town, could really understand the workings of a club such as BRFC with his vast knowledge, along with being a dyed in the wool supporter, was able to achieve the great success that he brought to the town under the banner BRFC with aplomb. Again, for those that you mention above(the billionaires of India) do not arrive at that stature by venturing into a world that they do not understand thus squandering their hard earned(and I say that loosely) money.

Venky are learning a harsh lesson, and throw into this the unrest they have caused then it is fair to say they have to rectify this fine mess we fine ourselves in, whilst all the time, the Billionaires of India are watching closely this unfolding mess, in turn receiving free and priceless information that could very well lead to that which you allude to ?

For the sake of our club I truly hope that Venkys do learn from this baptism of fire, and stand by their word of upholding BRFC to that which the good folk expect it's club to be represented ?

Venky did say Blackburn had a large Indian Population and BRFC was a good historical club that won the Premier League title,that was the reason they bought BRFC.They were offered other Clubs in Premier League and Championship.
Laxmi Mittal the richest man in UK worth £17.5 Billion owns QPR,right now QPR is lying bottom of table in Prmier League and i dont think Mittal's vast fortune would save QPR from being relegated this season.
Venky did promise BRFC that they would spend beetween £10 to £15 milion on transfer funds on new players every season.
There are only two clubs where these billionaires are spending their vast wealth the Seikh at Man City and Ambromovich at Chelsea the rest of the clubs like Fulham,Southhampton,
Notting Forrest,Hull,Sunderl
and,Birmingham city,Leicester city,Watford their foreign billionaire owners are not spending crazy and break their bank.It's up to their owners if they want to spend crazy or spend wisely.
