Allardyce jets in for Blackburn talks today

Former Newcastle United and Bolton Wanderers boss Sam Allardyce is set for talks with Blackburn Rovers today.

The Mirror says Allardyce s flying in for an interview with Blackburn today - as the hunt for a new manager moves into overdrive.

He will meet Rovers officials as ex-Ewood Park favourite Alan Shearer last night revealed he had been offered the job and turned it down. Allardyce's hopes have soared after Shearer ruled out a return because he wants to stick with the BBC.
