Blackburn have struck terms for Zenit St Petersburg striker Pavel Pogrebnyak.

The Sunday Telegraph says Rovers have agreed in principle to bring Russian international striker Pogrebnyak to the club should Roque Santa Cruz be sold to Manchester City.

Blackburn will only sell if City meet their £20 million valuation of the player and would swiftly re-invest in the region of £10million on the highly-rated Pogrebnyak, whose contract with Zenit expires in November.
