Setanta Sports reports that Robbie Fowler is on the verge of completing a one year pay-as-you-play deal move to Blackburn Rovers, after Cardiff revealed he received an offer from Paul Ince.
Ince reportedly is willing to take his former team-mate, now 33 years old, once he can prove his fitness. Cardiff has confirmed they have agreed to release the former Liverpool striker, who scored six goals in an injury-disrupted season last year.
A statement carried on CardiffÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s official website said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Late on Thursday night Robbie Fowler informed us that he has been offered the opportunity to join Blackburn Rovers. We fully understand that the lure of The Premier League was a major factor in his decision and wish Robbie well in the future at his new club.Ã¢â‚¬Â
At his best, Fowler was arguably the most natural finisher the Premier League has ever seen. He sits fourth in the Premier League all-time goal-scorers list on 161 goals, needing 14 more to surpass Thierry Henry in third.
