Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is eager to cash in on defender Nedum Onuoha.

The Sun says City's £6m-rated defender Nedum Onuoha has been told he can leave Eastlands - with Blackburn Rovers his likely destination.

Rovers boss Steve Kean, who signed former Aberdeen defender Myles Anderson yesterday, is a big fan of Onuoha's and has already opened talks with City chief Mancini.

Sunderland also remain interested in Onuoha, having had the player on-loan last season.
