Petrovic nears Blackburn move

Steve Kean is set to complete his first signing of the summer after the Blackburn boss revealed he is on the verge of bringing Partizan Belgrade midfielder Radosav Petrovic to the club.

A work permit is the only obstacle to Petrovic, 22, being unveiled as a Rovers player, as Kean looks to reinforce his squad ahead of the new Premier League season, which kicks off on August 13.

"We're very close,'' Kean said. "We've agreed a fee, we've agreed personal terms and now we're just subject to a work permit and Petrovic will become a Blackburn player.

"He's a fantastic player, I've seen him for a number of years. Unfortunately for us we lost Jermaine Jones back to Schalke and we've been looking to strengthen in that area.''

One player who could be set to leave Ewood Park is Nikola Kalinic, with the striker likely to join Ukrainian side Dnipro.

"That's been quite complicated,'' Kean said. "We believe a bid has been accepted by the Ukrainian club that has been interested in Niko and if that goes through, then we wish him all the best. I think we're very close to agreeing a deal and I think he'll move on.''
