Blackburn Rovers are being credited with an interest in Bayern Munich defender Thomas Linke.

The experienced stopper is out of contract next summer after only signing a one-year extension with the Bavarian club last January.

After admitting he is attracted by the prospect of a switch to The Premiership, Ewood Park could emerge as a viable option for the 34-year-old.

Linke, who celebrates his birthday on Boxing Day, knows he is nearing the end of his career and a bumper final pay-day in England cannot be discounted.

Rovers boss Mark Hughes, who spent some time on loan at Bayern during his playing career, is rumoured to be keeping tabs on the situation as he examines ways of strengthening his squad during January's transfer window.

this guy is a good solid defender, aint seen him play in a long time and prob lacks pace but for positioning and defending wise he is good. i guess with bayern buying lucio the brazilian it will be hard for him to get into the team there?

At the moment Blackburn are doing a Tottenham, they are linked with everyone that moves. Hughes is only getting a samll budget so it will be interesting to see who they do buy.

Links admits he wouldnt mind about blackburn


"That is a good and interesting club," said Linke. "I would like to have a look at them."

Reports suggest Blackburn have already made contact with Bayern, with regards to whether Linke would be available in the New Year.

Rovers chief Hughes is anxious to bolster his back-line and, in addition to being an admirer of Linke, is closing on a deal for South Africa international Aaron Mokoena.
