Blackburn are closing in on the signing of Barry Douglas from Leeds United and they also hope to secure Norwich City’s Tom Trybull on loan before tomorrow’s 5pm deadline.
The Scottish left wing-back has fallen down the pecking order at Elland Road and a move to the Championship has been suggested for weeks, with Watford thought to be monitoring the player as well.
However, it appears as though Rovers have won the race for the 31-year-old as The Athletic journalist Phil Hay confirmed that Douglas is undergoing a medical ahead of of his proposed switch to join Tony Mowbray’s side.
And, that won’t be the only business that the club are looking to do in the next 24 hours, with BBC Norfolk reporter Chris Goreham revealing on Twitter that a loan move for Trybull is in the pipeline.
The 27-year-old German, who is predominantly a defensive midfielder, featured in 16 games as the Canaries were relegated last season but he has yet to feature in the current campaign and is seemingly not in Daniel Farke’s plans moving forward.
This would be a very productive end to the window for Blackburn and they would be bringing in two players who are very good at this level and they have both won the Championship as well.
That sort of experience can be key in helping the squad and it’s sure to give everyone a lift if the deals are finalise by tomorrow evening.
So, the fans will be hoping for no late twists in these deals and it will leave Mowbray’s squad in a significantly stronger position once they are concluded.
