• Paul Warhurst signed for Blackburn Rovers three weeks after signing a four-year deal at Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday’s makeshift striker Paul Warhurst, had all but clinched a big-money move to Ewood Park at the second attempt just three weeks after signing a new four-year contract at Hillsborough. Blackburn chairman Rob Coar said that Warhurst had undergone a medical and x-rays, the results of which would not be known until next week. If all would be well, the £2.75 million deal will then be completed.

Warhurst was originally set to jump aboard the Kenny Dalglish bandwagon for £3 million the previous month, but the deal was put on ice when Wednesday failed to date land Brian Deane from neighbours Sheffield United as a replacement. Then came yesterday afternoon, when Dalglish’s right-hand man Ray Harford stepped in.

Paul Warhurst said: “Ray rang me right out of the blue at 5 pm on Thursday afternoon to say the deal was back on again and would 1 come to Blackburn. I didn’t even have to think about it, I just said yes. There is a lot of potential at Blackburn, where they are building three new stands and have a very good team I know Rovers have three top-quality strikers in Alan Shearer, Mike Newell and Kevin Gallacher. But I am prepared to play in any position the manager might ask me.”
