Roma midfielder Faty: I want Blackburn deal
The 23-year-old midfielder begins a trial with Sam Allardyce's Rovers today after making just eight Serie A appearances last season.
He said: "Right now Blackburn are my best option. I would have loved to join a club in France but the opportunity has not come up. I could stay with Roma for another two years. However I'm 23 now, and I need first-team football."
