Blackburn keen on Sporting Lisbon's Farnerud

Blackburn boss Mark Hughes will not be too busy in January's transfer window - but is pondering a move for Sporting Lisbon's Pontus Farnerud.

Rovers have gone off the boil recently - and Sunday's 1-0 home defeat by West Ham means the club have taken just five points from last six Premier League matches, coming on the back of a seven-match-winning streak.

Rovers have slipped to ninth in the table - and although Hughes plans to keep faith with his current crop at Ewood, he did admit: "If opportunities present themselves then we will look at them."

One such opportunity could be the capture of Sporting midfielder Farnerud, who would cost around £800,000 according to The Sun.
