Blackburn Rovers Make £3.5m Bid for QPR Forward Jamie Mackie

Ewood Park side chase Loftus Road forward.

Blackburn boss Steve Kean is making an ambitious £3.5million bid to sign Queens Park Rangers’ Scotland forward Jamie Mackie.

Kean has approached his Hoops counterpart Mark Hughes with an offer for Mackie and is now in discussions with the player’s camp about a move to the Championship promotion hopefuls.

Mackie has just signed a contract extension after playing a major part in Rangers’ successful survival battle last season, but may be squeezed out of the side in the coming campaign.

Even though QPR boss Mark Hughes has brought in a number of new players this summer, including experienced striker Andy Johnson, one would imagine that Jamie Mackie is very much part of the Welshman’s plans for the coming campaign.

Last term Mackie impressed in both an orthodox striking role as well as when used out wide, netting seven goals in 24 Premier League starts. Though the Super Hoops do have a myriad of forward options it would be odd if the Dorking born Scottish international was a player the West London side would accept offers for.

Blackburn Rovers have done well to bring in some quality players to Ewood Park following their relegation to the Championship with boss Steve Kean signing Danny Murphy, Nuno Gomes, Fabio Nunes and Leon Best thus far.
