Rovers made Fabiano bid

Blackburn Rovers have revealed they made an attempt to sign Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano in January.

Blackburn, now under the ownership of Indian company Venky's, expressed an interest in signing the likes of Ronaldinho and David Beckham as they sought to make a major impact in the January window.

In the end, they signed Mauro Formica and Ruben Rochina on permanent deals as well as Roque Santa Cruz and Jermaine Jones on loan, but they have now announced that they made an ambitious bid for Brazil international Fabiano.

"We did talk with Sevilla about Fabiano," a spokesman told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. "It was after we did not sign Ronaldinho, but we are not interested in signing Fabiano now.

"We want to sign a young striker, but there are no plans for transfers now. We still have more time."
