Blackburn close in on Michel Salgado

Right-back Salgado, 33, is in talks with Rovers over a surprise move after he left Real Madrid. And Allardyce has identified the player as being in the same mould as Hierro, another veteran Spanish defender who he signed on a short-term deal when manager at the Reebok Stadium.

"But I would like to add Michel Salgado to that - I think that he's an outstanding player of world-class quality. "I think he will do a Fernando Hierro-type job for me, the same as Fernando did for me at Bolton. "He (Salgado) came for a test and the test was okay. It just lies with the financial side now which is hopefully going to be okayed by early next week."
