Blackburn Rovers 4-0 Birmingham City: Reaction from Tony Mowbray after  fifth successive win - LancsLive

Blackburn update as discussions continue over three players

Leopold Wahlstedt is the subject of interest from Scandinavia but no deal has been formalised for the goalkeeper to leave Blackburn Rovers, The Lancashire Telegraph understands.

The 24-year-old joined Rovers from Odd last summer and endured a difficult debut season in English football. Wahlstedt was recruited to compete with Aynlsey Pears after Thomas Kaminski was sold.

A report from Tipsbladet earlier this week claimed that Danish side AGF had offered one million euros. That would be around that same figure Rovers investment 12 months ago.

It’s understood that Rovers have fielded interest from clubs in the region but no deal is imminent. Wahlstedt signed a three-year deal at Ewood Park last summer and so has plenty of time left on his existing terms.
