Former England striker Robbie Fowler is close to agreeing a pay-as-you-play deal with Blackburn Rovers and could be in the squad for this weekend’s Premier League match against Arsenal.

The 33-year-old former Liverpool, Leeds and Manchester City forward, who had most recently been playing for Championship side Cardiff, has been training with Rovers since his former Anfield and England colleague Paul Ince took over as manager at Ewood Park.

Blackburn chairman John Williams said Tuesday: “We have agreed in principle a three-month pay-as-you-play deal and we hope to have it tied up by the end of the week.

“If we go ahead on that basis and get it registered then if the manager wants him he would be able to be in the squad against Arsenal on Saturday.”

Fowler is currently a free agent after leaving Cardiff during the pre-season. He was offered a pay-as-you-play deal with the Welsh side but turned it down for the chance of a trial with Blackburn.
