Blackburn in for Man City striker

Mirror Football have reported that Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is attempting to sign Manchester City’s misfit Brazilian striker Jo in a bargain deal, only two years after he arrived at the Premier League for a club record fee.

The Brazilian is wanted by Rovers, who either could take him on a season-long loan, or in a permanent deal for a cheap fee, as City look to offload some of their squad members in a hurry.

The Brazilian, who spent last season on loan at Everton, is back at Eastlands after a mixed year at Goodison Park, and is only getting into the City team on the odd occasion, and looks to be out of manager Mancini’s long-term plans.

City paid a record £11m fee for Jo when he was signed from CSKA Moscow but he has become a casualty of their crazy spending in the last couple of seasons
