Blackburn ready to deal in Meriem

Blackburn Rovers are ready to deal in Camel Meriem.

Blackburn Rovers are ready to deal in Camel Meriem.

The Mirror says Meriem is ready to take a short-team deal to make his dream move to Blackburn Rovers go through - in time to help Sam Allardyce's wafer-thin squad.

French free agent Meriem - a classy midfielder from Monaco - has accepted a contract until the end of the season because he thinks he can play his way into a longer stay.

Meriem, who is going through a medical at Ewood Park, wanted a full-time switch but Rovers are short of transfer funds and he is taking a gamble.
