Blackburn Rovers are set to complete the signing of Simon Vukčević for £2,000,000 (€2,300,000). According to the Lancashire Telegraph the player is soon set to have a medical with the club.
Simon Vukčević joined Sporting back in 2007 from Saturn Moscow Oblast and went on to score 28 goals in 131 appearances for the club. Since the start of summer it had been well known that Simon Vukčević did not feature as part of Sporting’s future plans. The Montenegrin’s past confrontations with the club may have been a greater deciding factor than his actual on field ability.
The midfielder has long been linked with a move to England and even more so in the North West, with numerous stories involving him possibly moving to Blackburn Rovers and recently their rivals, Bolton Wanderers.
