Reading striker Dominic Samuel is on his way to Blackburn Rovers, according to a reliable journalist.
Alan Nixon is reporting that Blackburn Rovers have won the race to sign Dominic Samuel despite interest from other Championship clubs.
Blackburn are willing to pay Dominic Samuel high wages and have offered him more than what Ipswich Town and Barnsley are willing to pay.
The transfer is set to go ahead with Blackburn Rovers paying Reading up to £500,000 for Samuel.
The 23-year-old is now set to reunite with Tony Mowbray at Blackburn.
Samuel had a loan spell at Coventry City when Tony Mowbray was the manager.
During his stint with the Sky Blues, the pacey striker netted six goals in thirteen games to help keep Coventry City up in League One.
Jaap Stam is ready to let the young forward leave Reading on a permanent basis after allowing him to join Ipswich Town on loan last January.
The former England under-19 international failed to find the net in his six outings for the Tractor Boys but was still identified as a target for Mick McCarthy’s side.
Samuel scored twice in eleven games for Reading before January and is now set to drop down a division to kick start his career.
Blackburn Rovers appear to have won the race for the 6ft 2in centre-forward with an official announcement expected fairly imminently.
