Blackburn finalising terms for Marseille defender Givet

Blackburn Rovers are finalising a loan deal for Marseille defender Gael Givet.

Givet has been at Blackburn's Brockhall training ground for talks and had a club medical this week.

Rovers also hope to secure first refusal on sealing a £4 million deal for the 27-year-old in the summer - but much will depend on whether they stay up.

Givet - who has 13 caps for Les Bleus, will provide Big Sam with cover for his back four as they battle to avoid the drop.
