Blackburn Rovers have taken South Africa international Aaron Mokoena on trial.

If the Genk defender impresses, he could become Mark Hughes's first signing since taking over at Ewood Park, when the transfer window reopens in January.

Former Wales coach Hughes has been alerted to the 24-year-old's availability and has invited him to Lancashire for a two-day stint with the Premiership strugglers.

The former Jomo Cosmos, Ajax and Germinal Beerschot stopper has shone since earning a first team place at Genk under Rene Vandereycken.

Norwich City and Leicester City were interested in Mokoena last summer but he could earn a dream move to England for 2005 if he does enough to convince Hughes to take the plunge.

another defender being linked to them, certainly looking like that is there top prioroty. he has at least played for ajax who are a decent team. prob has potential too as ajax are good at finding young players and selling them on.

looks like he is close to signing


Blackburn Rovers are closing in on a deal for South Africa international Aaron Mokoena.

The Genk defender recently trained with the Premiership outfit and impressed Rovers boss Mark Hughes with his ability.

Rovers have been in talks with their Belgian counterparts regarding a deal for the 24-year-old when the transfer window reopens.

They need to sign a few players as they are struggling badly, lucky for them others are playing just as bad at the moment. And what might save them is that the three that came up Norwich, Palace and West Brom are struggling and maybe only West Brom have the players to get them out of it...

The problem with trialists and alot of loan signings (if hoping for a permanent move) is that they work their asses off hoping for a new deal. Once they get the deal and are comfortable with their contract, they turn into lazy bastards and don't try nearly as hard...

South Africa captain Aaron Mokoena believes he can adjust quickly to life at Blackburn after a seven-year spell in Europe.

The 24-year-old defender is due to arrive next week from Genk for 300,000 following a successful trial spell.

Mokoena left his homeland at 17 to join Dutch giants Ajax before moving to Belgium first with Germinal Beerschot.

He now feels he is ready for England's top flight after securing a two-and-a-half-year deal.

ajax snapped him up when he was 17, and at that time, ajax had about the best youth scouting network in the world.

i dont think hes been a permanent appearence player for them though, but hughes seems to have been taking time on his transfers, he aint rushed this one so i think he should be ok
