Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan has emerged on the radar of Blackburn Rovers.

The Daily Mail suggests that Rovers boss Gary Bowyer is very keen on the 23-year old Scotland international and could soon make a play for him.

Bannan made 24 Premier League appearances under Paul Lambert last season but he has signed central midfielder Leandro Bacuna from FC Groningen and winger Aleksandar Tonev from Lech Poznan this summer and is also likely to hand more game time to the likes of Yacouba Sylla and Ashley Westwood.
