Jason Roberts prepared for Ewood Park exit


Striker Jason Roberts expects to leave Blackburn Rovers before the transfer window slams shut at the end of the month.

The 32-year-old has held talks with the club about his future prospects and accepts that he will have to move on sooner rather than later.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph:"It looks like I will be leaving the club. We have had discussions and mutually agreed it is time to move on.

"I have no pre conceived ideas about what will happen next and it would be wrong to talk about anything until there is something officially happening.

"Like I said, all I can say is we have reached a mutual decision where if there is a chance for me to move on then we would like to take that up. We will have to wait and see what happens.

"From my point of view I have had some good years here.

"I have been part of some very good teams and am very comfortable with what I have done here."

Roberts has scored 22 goals in 117 appearances for Rovers since his arrival from Wigan Athletic four years ago.
