Blackburn Rovers are still no nearer to clinching a deal for Boudewijn Zenden as the former Dutch international weighs up his options.
Rovers boss Steve Kean is very interested in signing the 35-year-old to add experience to his squad as they look to see off the threat of relegation from the Premier League.
However, Kean isn't the only manager to have expressed a desire to take on the experienced winger, who has made it perfectly clear that he won't be rushed into an agreement that doesn't suit him.
The ex-Chelsea, Liverpool and Middlesbrough star is currently a free agent after leaving Sunderland at the end of last season.
He was recommended as a potential signing for Rovers by Kean's new right-hand man Eric Black who worked with Zenden during their time together at the Stadium of Light.
Zenden is quoted in the Daily Mail, "Blackburn have made me an offer, but we have not yet reached agreement.
"Their interest is very serious.
"They are in a bad predicament and they need experienced players due to their league position - but that is the same situation for other teams interested in me."
