Blackburn Rovers set to seal six-figure deal for 24-year-old

Rovers are set to strengthen their goalkeeping department following the departure of Thomas Kaminski

Blackburn Rovers are closing in on the capture of Odd Ballklubb goalkeeper Leopold Wahlstedt.

Wahlstedt’s arrival will boost Rovers’ goalkeeping options and provide healthy competition for Aynsley Pears, maintaining high standards in the position.

If Wahlstedt performs well and becomes the starting option, Blackburn could possibly sell him in the future for a profit.

Blackburn Rovers are closing in on the signing of Leopold Wahlstedt from Norwegian side Odd Ballklubb, according to an update from Sky Sports.

After the sale of Thomas Kaminski, this has given Jon Dahl Tomasson the license to spend in the transfer market following a mixed start to the summer.

Arnor Sigurdsson, Niall Ennis and Sondre Tronstad were all recruited during the early stages of the window and it looked set to be a successful summer for Rovers who narrowly missed out on the play-offs at the end of last term.

However, no other senior signing has been made since then and this is a blow for the Lancashire side, who start their league campaign today as they face West Bromwich Albion.

It has been reported that Blackburn’s owners Venky’s are having trouble transferring money to the UK because of Indian government regulations and during his time with the media, Tomasson has hinted that there has been a change in strategy.

But the sale of Kaminski, who made a £2.5m+ move to Luton Town, has seemingly allowed Rovers to dip into the transfer market and pay a fee for Wahlstedt.
