Blackburn Rovers have made an enquiry for West Bromwich Albion defender Cedric Kipre, according to Lancashire Live.
Kipre was one of several key players to leave Wigan Athletic in the summer, after the club entered administration following their relegation from the Championship.
The 24-year-old joined West Bromwich Albion in a cut-price deal, but he has since endured a frustrating spell at the Hawthorns.
Kipre is yet to feature in the Premier League for the Baggies, and his two appearances for the club have come in the Carabao Cup against Harrogate Town and Brentford.
According to Lancashire Live, Blackburn – who wanted to sign Kipre on a permanent basis in the summer – have enquired about the 24-year-old’s loan availability.
Tony Mowbray is keen to bolster his defensive ranks this month, with Daniel Ayala, Scott Wharton and Derrick Williams all out through injury.
Bradley Johnson had to play at centre-half against Birmingham City at the weekend, showing how much depth they are lacking at the back.
This would be a great signing for Blackburn and one that you could definitely see happening.
Kipre is out of the first-team picture at West Brom and doesn’t seem to be a part of Sam Allardyce’s plans, so a loan move would be best for both parties this month.
Kipre has been a solid player in the Championship in previous seasons, and he’d add a real physical presence and defensive quality to Blackburn’s ranks if he were to arrive at Ewood Park this month.
