Blackburn willing to discuss swap for Santa Cruz

Blackburn Rovers are willing to discuss a cash-plus-player swap for striker Roque Santa Cruz.

Sources from Ewood Park have indicated though Rovers would now consider a smaller transfer fee plus a 'suitable player' in exchange for last season's top scorer - as they bid to get best possible value for him, says the Lancashire Telegraph.
