Blackburn Rovers keen to offload goalkeeper Paul Robinson

Blackburn Rovers have admitted they would be prepared to listen to loan offers for former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson.

The ex-Leeds United and Tottenham Hotspur shot-stopper, who has spent the last five years at Ewood Park, has lost his place in the first team this season to Jake Kean.

At the age of 33, he is eager to find regular football elsewhere and almost joined West Ham United during the January transfer window but the move broke down.

He will not look to force through a move, but Blackburn have revealed they would allow him to leave on a short-term deal if a tempting offer arrived.

They would be looking for any interested party to help supplement Robinson's wages, with the Championship outfit in the process of trying to cut costs.

Rovers manager Michael Appleton said: “It would have to be the right club for us in terms of what they are prepared to do in terms of salary.

"We've talked, but not once has Paul said he doesn't want to play for us.”

Robinson has not played since the 4-1 defeat at home to Cardiff City on December 7 when former manager Henning Berg was still in charge and has been unable to force his way back into the side since Appleton’s arrival.

His replacement Kean has kept two consecutive clean sheets in the FA Cup win at Derby and the 2-0 league victory over Bristol City which put Rovers seven points away from the play-off positions.

Blackburn are a best-priced 16/1 with bookmaker Paddy Power to be promoted this season.
