According to Baniyas deputy chairman Mubarak Awad, the 24-year-old will link up with the Championship side for the upcoming campaign with a view to returning to the UAE in a year's time.

"Blackburn were in touch, they sent a letter," Awad told Sport360.

"He is not for sale but we will send him out on loan. He will go next week and train with them and after that stay for the season.

"We are hoping he will come back at the end of the season with more experience to help in the future."

Abdulrahman is one of the Gulf nation's rising stars and was a standout player during his country's impressive showing at the 2012 London Olympics.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
