Brann pondered trumping Blackburn for Fowler

Brann have confirmed they considered a move for off contract striker Robbie Fowler.

"I can confirm that we thought of the possibility of signing Fowler but the cost of the deal meant that we did not consider the matter further," Brann's sporting director Roald Bruun-Hanssen told nrkhordaland.no.

Bruun-Hanssen also had other reservations about the transfer.

He added: "It is a long time since Fowler was a top player. In addition he is not known as a leader which is something we're looking for.

"Also, there is some uncertainty associated with a player who is getting older and who has been wandering around a bit the last few years."

Fowler is still mulling over a contract offer from Blackburn.
