Blackburn Rovers could look to move in on Dundee forward Greg Stewart after reports they’ve agreed a fee to sell Grant Henley to Newcastle United. The Championship side have been linked with Stewart in the past few weeks, along with Leeds United.
Sky Sports have confirmed Newcastle United have agreed to pay £5.5m to Blackburn Rovers to sign Henley. Blackburn Rovers were holding out for £6m, but yesterday agreed to Newcastle United’s bid.
The 26-year-old will now travel to Newcastle United to have his medical, and if there aren’t any complications he should sign for the club very soon.
With Blackburn Rovers set for a windfall with the sale of the defender it is now expected they will try to sign Stewart from Dundee.
The SPL club want £1.5m for the forward, which has scared off a number of Scottish clubs wanting to sign the 26-year-old.
However, with the Henley money this will not be not been seen as a problem for Blackburn Rovers, and they will be hoping to sign the player ahead of Leeds United.
