Wes Thomas: Impressed during a loan spell at Blackpool

The 25-year-old has spent time in the Championship this season during a loan spell at Blackpool.

Part of his time at Bloomfield Road saw him working under Michael Appleton, and it is understood that the now Blackburn boss is also keen on doing a deal.

It is, however, Rovers' Lancashire rivals Burnley who have made the first move.

The Clarets have spent much of the winter window fending off reported interest in a frontman of their own - Charlie Austin.

There is no suggestion that Thomas is being lined up as a replacement for Austin, with Sean Dyche more concerned about bolstering his ranks ahead of a potential promotion push.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
