Rovers ponder Teymourian move

20 July 2010 04:47
Blackburn Rovers will take another look at Andranik Teymourian before deciding whether to offer the trialist a permanent contract at Ewood Park. The Iranian midfielder played in Saturday's 3-0 pre-season win at Southport and is expected to feature in midweek matches against either Preston North End or Huddersfield Town. Sheffield United are also believed to be interested in the 27-year-old, but Rovers coach Steve Kean said: "He's trained very well. I think he had a little bit of a tough time when he was at Fulham and didn't play too many games. "But he certainly made a good impact on the sessions and Saturday in the game. He does need match practice to get back into the swing of things though." Rovers manager Sam Allardyce signed Teymourian four years ago for Bolton Wanderers from Iranian outfit FC Aboomoslem and the midfielder went on to score four goals in 30 appearances for the Trotters before moving to Fulham on a free transfer two years ago. However, injuries restricted him to only two appearances for the Cottagers and he was loaned out to Barnsley in the second half of the 2008-09 campaign before being released at the end of last term.
