Blackburn Kean on former Liverpool star

Updated: March 21, 2012

Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean is still looking to bring former Sunderland and Liverpool star Boudewijn Zenden to the club.

The 54 times capped Netherlands international (a veteran of the 1998 World Cup) is now a free agent having left Sunderland at the end of last season.  Kean has felt that the man who started his senior career at PSV Eindhoven back in 1993 would be a valuable addition to the playing squad in terms of the experience he could bring to the side as well as the way he conducts himself on and off the pitch.

It is reported that the 35 year-old Zenden had impressed at a training period with the club but that a deal had fallen through.  However, Blackburn who have this week gone a long way towards ensuring themselves of Premier League football for next season having beaten Sunderland 2-0 and going six points clear of the drop zone;  appear to be set to broker a deal with the midfielder which looks set to bring him to the club for the final few weeks of the season.

Whilst the diminutive playmaker has been linked with a few other English clubs; those clubs are said to be outside the top flight and Zenden is believed to want to pit his wits at the highest level one last time as Blackburn look for the couple of more wins which will copperfasten their Premier League survival.
