Blackburn Rovers are favourites to appoint Diego Maradona as manager.

Maradona will hold talks next month about bossing an English club - and Blackburn could be favourites to land him.

The Argentina legend had discussions with Rovers after they sacked Sam Allardyce in December.

He said: "In February I am going to England to listen to a firm offer. If they convince me, I may take it up. I am not desperate. I know that some day I will coach another team."

The Sun says Blackburn believe Maradona would strengthen their bid to sign big-name South American players after failing to land Brazil's Ronaldinho last week.
