Agent: Blackburn chase Haestad

He told the FVN website: “I can confirm that there is interest. I have talked to Blackburn recently and Kristofer is on their list. I would not be surprised if Rovers table an offer when the window opens.”

Haestad is unsure if he wants a return to the Premiership following his disappointing spell at Wigan. Haestad was sent back to Norwegian side Start three months into a six-month deal.

Haestad said: “I am surprised that it has come up this fast.

“To move to England again is not something I am thinking about after what happened at Wigan.”
