Kean confirms Ruud interest

Van Nistelrooy, who is currently plying his trade at Hamburg, has

previously admitted his interest in returning to England at some

point in the future and Blackburn are ready to offer him that

opportunity. Blackburn’s owners Venky’s are keen to bring in a

big-name signing to boost their profile and van Nistelrooy could

fit the bill. The Dutchman is out of contract at Hamburg at the end

of the season and could arrive at Ewood Park on a free transfer.

Kean has now confirmed the 34-year-old hit-man is on Blackburn’s

list of transfer targets for next season. “Yes, I can confirm we

are interested,” Kean told the ESPN soccernet.
