Bance keen on England move

Blackburn Rovers have been linked with an interest in Mainz striker Aristide Bance, who is weighing up a number of offers according to his agent.

The 25-year-old Burkina Faso international has spent the last two seasons in Germany, having previously played in Ukraine for Metalurh Donetsk and in Belgium with Lokeren.

His agent, Saif Rubie, told Sky Sports:"I have a lot of teams interested in Aristide with some big teams in England, Germany and France keen on him.

"However, if Aristide can come to the Premier League, that would be his first choice."

Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is known to be keen to add to his strike options before next season and has also been linked with former Portsmouth loanee Frederic Piquionne and Stoke City's Turkey international Tuncay.
