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.

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
