Alan Mahon
Mahon, a left sided midfielder, joined Blackburn in a £1.5m move from Sporting Lisbon after a successful loan period where he helped Rovers gain Promotion to the Premiership. The 24 year old Dubliner has two Irish caps.

Graham Souness is quoted talking to Radio Lancashire

"Several clubs were interested in taking Alan Mahon on loan - Burnley, Coventry, Walsall and Cardiff. As we speak, I think Cardiff are the favourites. We'd rather sell players so we can go out and buy someone."

A loan move could be signed today as far as reports make out.

More later.
