Blackburn Rovers Remain Hopeful Of Luring Tim Sherwood To Ewood Park

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 18 October 2012, 10:09

To date Tottenham Hotspur have simply refused to give Blackburn Rovers permission to speak to their technical co-ordinator Tim Sherwood. The former Rovers captain has emerged as the top target to replace Steve Keen at the helm of the Lancashire club but Spurs have so far remained stubborn by rejecting two approaches for the 43-year-old. Rovers, who are reportedly still keen on luring Sherwood to Ewood Park, had been eager to appoint a new manager during the international break but it now looks like their search will be prolonged into next week, at the very least.

Spurs chairman Daniel Levy holds Sherwood in very high regard and is not willing to allow Rovers the chance to speak to him as there is every chance he could be tempted to return to his former club. Sherwood is believed to be interested in management and the Blackburn vacancy represents a very attractive opportunity for him at this stage in his career.

Elsewhere Ian Holloway has emerged as a real contender in the Next Blackburn Rovers Manager Betting market. The Blackpool boss can be found with odds of just 5/4 with some bookmakers but both Holloway and Rovers remain tight-lipped. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer appears out of the question for the time being as he has stated he will not consider any job offers until the conclusion of the Norwegian season next month. Meanwhile former Roves player Alan Shearer is still in the frame, as is Mick McCarthy.

Caretaker manager Eric Black, who is still in contention for the job, will remain in charge for Blackburn's trip to Derby on Saturday. Rovers have failed to win any of their last four matches, which has seen them drop from an automatic promotion spot to 9th in the table. Paddy Power have installed the hosts as the 11/8 favourites for the win, while Rovers can be backed at 15/8 to come away with the three points, with a draw available at 23/10.
