OWEN Coyle has revealed that Blackburn Rovers will make decisions on trialists Paul Caddis and Lucas Mugni before the end of the week.

The pair have been training with the first-team squad this week in a bid to earn potential deals, with decisions expected to be made tomorrow.

Rovers are looking at free agents in a bid to strengthen their squad having been left frustrated in their searches before the transfer window closed on January 31.

Both are free agents, with right-back Caddis having been released by Birmingham City last month, while attacking midfielder Mugni, aged 25, left Flamengo in January having had a loan spell at Newell’s Old Boys.

Caddis the more well known of the two having made 286 career appearances, with more than 150 of those coming during his time at St Andrew’s.

Right-back is an area of the pitch in which Rovers are currently short of options, with Ben Marshall having left for Wolves on deadline day and Adam Henley still sidelined by injury. 

The 28-year-old started out at Celtic before moving south of the border in 2010 when he joined Swindon. 

He spent two years in Wiltshire before joining Birmingham where he went on to play 159 times. 

However, he had just one EFL Cup appearance to his name this season, having been sidelined by a dislocated shoulder, before his release. 

Mugni meanwhile is an Argentinian attacking midfielder, but with an Italian passport, and started out at CA Colon in Argentina before a move to Flamengo in 2014 for just short of £1million.

The left-footer is understood to have impressed with his technical ability, but the fitness of both, as well as their likely impact, will be assessed before any decisions are made.

Efe Ambrose continues to train with Rovers as they await a decision on whether the central defender will be granted a work permit ahead of his proposed loan move from Celtic.
