Blackburn Rovers after Hibs full back Steven Whittaker???

Last updated : 30 April 2007 By Steve Forbes

According to this morning's press Hibs full back Steven Whittaker is being chased by English Premiership side Blackburn Rovers.

The Scotland U-21 international has already been linked with a move to fellow Premiership side
Middlesbrough after they expressed an interest in him earlier this season.

Whittaker, 22, has been in outstanding form again this season and this has apparently attracted the interest of Rovers
boss Mark Hughes.

According to said reports
Blackburn are ready to bid £2m for Whittaker to prise him away from Easter Road.

Mark Hughes is expected to travel North to have a closer look at Whittaker before the end of the season.

Hibs fans could be about to face a testing summer, with Scott Brown, David Murphy & now Steven Whittaker all being linked with multi million pound moves South of the border.

Whether these reports are true or not, remain to be seen, but Whittaker would be a HUGE loss to the club.
