Auxerre poker star Hengbart reveals Blackburn, Stoke offers

Auxerre's poker-loving defender Cedric Hengbart is a Premier League target.

The Daily Star says Blackburn Rovers, Stoke City and QPR are raising the stakes to sign Hengbart.

The right-back and Texas hold 'em shark is due to fly to Las Vegas to compete in this month's World Series of Poker.

Cedric Hengbart, 30, said: "I have contacts in England. Stoke and Blackburn are the most serious ones and there's also QPR to a slightly lesser degree."

And the £1.5m-rated defender added: "Werder Bremen and Hannover have also been in touch.

"But Germany is my third priority behind England and France."
