League One outfit Blackburn Rovers are plotting a summer move for Queens Park Rangers midfielder Ben Gladwin, according to West London Sport.
The 25-year-old moved to Loftus Road back in 2015 after two years at Swindon Town, but has struggled to nail down a regular first team place in West London, earning just 17 appearances for the Hoops in the last two years.
In fact, the Englishman has twice been shipped out on loan back to the Robins in the past few seasons, earning 18 appearances first time round in 2015/16 and then 18 last time out as the Wiltshire-based club suffered relegation to League Two.
However, it appears that Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn are willing to end his QPR nightmare this summer, with the Lancashire-based outfit reportedly looking to secure the 25-year-old’s signature in the upcoming transfer window.
Mowbray’s men themselves suffered heart-breaking relegation last season after seeing their five-year stay in the second tier come to an end, going down on the final day despite winning three of their last five league matches.
Nonetheless, Blackburn will have to rebuild if they are to challenge for an immediate return back to the second tier, and with Gladwin having spent the vast majority of his career at League One level, he could be the ideal man to come in and strengthen Mowbray’s midfield.
Whether Rovers do indeed get a deal done for the 25-year-old remains to be seen, but what does seem clear is that his future is not at Loftus Road, and a move away looks likely to happen sooner rather than later.
