Blackburn Rovers hope to have deals for Everton striker Yakubu Aiyegbeni and Sheffield United’s Jordan Slew confirmed this morning.

The Lancashire Telegraph says Rovers are waiting for the FA to confirm deals to sign Yakubu and Slew.

Rovers finalised a move for Everton striker Yakubu on deadline day and also made a late swoop for 18-year-old Sheffield United forward.

But the paperwork went right to the wire and Rovers are yet to announce either signing as they wait for confirmation from the FA that the deals were done in time, with the governing body currently busy ratifying a number of transfers across the country.
