BLACKBURN Rovers will net a cash windfall if their former forward Ruben Rochina completes a big money move to Russia.

Rubin Kazan have reportedly triggered the 10 million euros release clause in Rochina’s contract at his current club Granada.


And if the transfer goes through Rovers will make around £1.25million after inserting a 15 per cent sell-on clause in the deal that took him back to Spain full time.

Rochina made 54 appearances, scoring 11 goals, at Ewood Park after arriving from Barcelona B in January 2011.

The former Spain youth international spent the second half of the 2012-13 and 2013-14 seasons on loan at Real Zaragoza and Rayo Vallecano respectively before he made a permanent return to his homeland in the summer of 2014 when he signed for Granada.

The 25-year-old has scored eight goals in 57 appearances for the Andalusian outfit including six last season as they secured La Liga survival for the fifth season running.

His excellent form has now attracted the attention of Rubin Kazan’s new manager, and fellow Spaniard, Javi Garcia.

The Russian Premier League outfit have reportedly offered to triple Rochina’s salary, an offer which Granada are said not to be able to match.

Meanwhile, Hyuga Tanner is on trial with Burton Albion.

The 19-year-old was released from Rovers in the summer having failed to make a first-team appearance at the club.

Now the Australian is hoping to win a deal at Championship rivals Burton.

He played the first half of the Brewers’ 2-0 win at Leek Town on Wednesday.

And Nigel Clough has confirmed he will not make a decision on the future of Tanner and the four other players he has on trial until at least after his side’s friendly at home to Stoke City tomorrow.

Burton boss Clough said: “It's very difficult to judge them on (Leek). Like everyone, it’s their first game. We’ve seen them in training for a week or so, so they’ll stay with us until the weekend and we'll make a decision then.”
