Blackburn will sign Domovchiyski without giving him a trial (plus video)

By Aries

As first reported on this site, Blackburn’s president John Williams has informed Levski Sofia with a fax that Blackburn would like to bring Domovchiyski to Ewood Park.

But the player himself knows nothing about it:

“I don't know anything connected with my possible transfer. Nobody has told me of Blackburn interest”

This is not a surprise as it appears that Blackburn want to sign Domovchiyski from the Bulgarian champions in the winter transfer window and are ready to start talks immediately.

But Unlike team-mate Nikolay Dimitrov, who is on trial at Arsenal from Monday (with English dictionary in hand), Bulgarian press is reporting that Blackburn are ready to hold talks outright without trying the player out on the football field.

It appears that Mark Hughes and his scouts are very impressed with what they saw either from their scouting missions or from the player’s videos.

Judge for yourselves by viewing the video window on the right hand side of the page.
