Paul Robinson: Has lost his place in the Blackburn side to Jake Kean

Robinson, who has spent the last five years at Ewood Park, has lost his place in the first-team this season to Jake Kean.

At the age of 33, he is eager to find regular football elsewhere and has been linked with West Ham United.

He will not look to force through a move, but Blackburn concede they would allow him to leave on a short-term deal if an enticing offer arrived.

They would be looking for any interested party to help supplement Robinson's wages, with the Championship outfit in the process of trying to cut costs.

Rovers boss Michael Appleton said: "It would have to be the right club for us in terms of what they're prepared to do in terms of salary.

"We've talked but not once has Paul said he doesn't want to play for us."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
