Roberts admits his time at Blackburn may be coming to an end

Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts believes his time is up after four years at Ewood Park. The 32-year-old has been linked with summer moves to West Brom and Newcastle while ambitious QPR are now believed to have joined the hunt for his coveted signature.

Boss Sam Allardyce recently confirmed Rovers would listen to offers for the striker and Roberts feels that if the deal was right for all concerned that he would move on.

"I've had four good years at Blackburn and been part of some good sides and played in Europe a few times and really enjoyed it," he told skysports.com.

"Sometimes you come to the end of a cycle at a club and maybe it's time for me to move on to a club with maybe some different ideas about where they are going.

"It was a good season last year to finish inside the top ten. I scored five goals in 15 starts and ended the season strongly.

"I know there's some interest from several clubs so hopefully something will come about and if not I'm still hungry to play."

Roberts has played in every league in England and is not ruling out playing outside the Premier League in order to find new employers.

"I've got an open mind. The key for me is that I want to play," he continued.

"I feel like I've got a couple of challenges left in me. I've played in all the leagues so I don't have a problem in trying some different.

"I've been at the club a long time. We'll wait and see what happens. If I stay then of course I'll work to get into the team.

"I'm open-minded. I've always taken on big challenges in my career."
