Pedersen closes in on Blackburn Rovers exit

First published in Sport

MORTEN Gamst Pedersen has jetted out to Turkey as Karabukspor attempt to finalise a deal for the Blackburn Rovers midfielder.

Pedersen has been seeking a new club after being allowed to leave Rovers on a free transfer, and had previously attracted interest from FC Copenhagen.

An offer from the Danish club, who will play in the Champions League, would have been a temptation for Pedersen.

But FC Copenhagen this week brought former Wolves boss Stale Solbakken back to the club as manager, and Pedersen’s fellow Norwegian immediately made it clear that a deal for the 31-year-old was unlikely.

There has also been rumoured interest in Pedersen from Turkey for some time, and the Rovers midfielder has now flown out for talks as Karabukspor look to snap him up on a two-year deal.

Rovers were not confirming any details but Karabukspor president Mustafa Yolbulan told the Turkish press that Pedersen was due to arrive last night, before having a medical today with a view to finalising a move.

Karabukspor play in Turkey’s top flight and are based in Karabuk on the northern coast of the country.

Former Newcastle and Portsmouth forward Lomana LuaLua is currently in their squad, while former Rovers defender Hakan Unsal started his career there.

Pedersen featured for Rovers’ under 21s on Monday, in what looks set to have been his final appearance at Ewood Park.

Pedersen has been a fantastic servant to the club.
Yeah, I know he's been well paid on decent contracts, but if we'd had more like him i.e. players and staff who actually give a toss about the club, we wouldn't be in the mess we're in.
I wish him well for the future.

No doubt this will be used by some people as ammunition against the owners. Some people must think it is realistic/viable for any Championship club to continue to shell out tens of thousands of pounds a week on a player who has contributed very little for the last 3-4 years simply because he has been a 'good servant'. Yes he's been a good one for Rovers, yes it would have been nice if he'd made it to ten years, but I remember four years ago that he was close to moving on before Allardyce handed him a new deal. Since then his contribution to the side has been non-existent. You can't keep on dishing out big wages on people for sentimental reasons.

Good luck for the future, and thanks for some great moments, both home and away.

You may be past your best, but you're still head and shoulders above any other midfielder still getting a game at the moment.
Well Stated !!

Good luck MGP no matter where you go.

Pity about Copenhagen. Wonderful city, great country.

Many thanks for some wonderful goals and great performances.

Don't look back in sadness, you are better off leaving the sinking ship.
Great statement.

Shame on GB the for letting him go.
Hardly recognise the club anymore, all you fans who never boycotted at the start of the mess saying 'give him time' etc shame on you.
People like you need to grow up, or at least get some perspective.

Peds has done a great job for us over the years no doubts at all about that, but he has been past his best for the last couple of seasons, maybe more, and pulling the blue and white tear stained scarf from my eyes I can remember the Blackburn End booing him roundly a few years ago when he was looking to get a move to a bigger club.

Double standards perhaps?

Ok we would all love to see players like him, Tugay, Salgado, Shearer playing week in week out, but **** happens, they get old, their legs go, they get a better offer and move on.

Some of us, pre Jack Walker, have cheered on players in the past that make this current crop of players look like world beaters..

Loyalty in football died when the PL game into being and players, managers became instant millionaires, just look what's going on now with Bale, Rooney, Baines, et al.

So no crocodile tears please, wish the guy the best and move on, ride the emotional tiger that is Blackburn Rovers.
