Blackburn boss Hughes to make Fortune decision

Blackburn boss Mark Hughes will decide in the next few days whether to sign ex-Manchester United utility man Quinton Fortune.

The former South African captain has been training with Blackburn Rovers for the past week during the club's mid-season break to Orlando.

And, because he is currently a free agent, he would be able to join up with Rovers immediately, should Hughes decide to offer him a short-term deal.

Rovers chairman John Williams confirmed to the Lancashire Telegraph that Fortune had been part of the group who travelled to America.

The 30-year-old has been out of the game since being released by Bolton last summer, with his time spent mainly back in his homeland and a spell with Western Province United, a club he helped found in 1998 as 'FC Fortune'.
