Former West Ham United defender Lucas Neill is set to re-sign with Blackburn Rovers.

The Daily Mail says Neill may get his wish of a return to Blackburn Rovers this week.

The 35-year-old Australian has been training at the Championship club and hopes the departure of Scott Dann to Crystal Palace on deadline day will help clear the club to give him a short term deal.

Neill has had nine clubs in a varied career and spent six years at Blackburn previously between 2001 and 2007.
