Blackburn rivalling Burnley in chase for international defender



Blackburn Rovers are reportedly one of a number of clubs interested in a move for Aberdeen centre-back Scott McKenna.

McKenna has been a key player for Aberdeen this season–featuring 25 times and helping them climb to fourth in the SPFL.

The central defender, who has made 14 appearances for the Scottish National Team, was linked with a number of English clubs in the summer and it seems that there is likely to be similar interest in January.

It is understood that the defender asked to leave the Scottish club at the end of last season and it appears there are plenty of teams keen on securing his services now.

According to the Daily Mail, Premier League side Burnley, Championship clubs Blackburn, Bristol City, and Huddersfield Town, and a number of teams in the Bundesliga are interested.

The report suggests that McKenna, who is under contract until 2023, was valued at £6 million by Aberdeen in the summer.

After winning five times in six games during late November and early December, Blackburn have been in poor form in recent weeks–failing to win in their last four league games.

That run has seen Tony Mowbray slide down the table to 13th, five points adrift of the top six

They will no doubt be looking to bounce back when they welcome Preston North End to Ewood Park on Saturday.

The Verdict

McKenna has drawn a lot of attention over the past 12 months and looks to be an impressive defender with a bright future.

In that sense, you feel it could be a really smart piece of business if Blackburn can get this done.

It may be tough for Blackburn, however, given the amount of reported competition there is–particularly from Premier League and Bundesliga clubs.
