Barcelona defender Frank de Boer has confirmed that he is tempted by a Premiership move to Blackburn Rovers.

The 32-year-old Dutch international is out of contract in the summer and can leave the Nou Camp on a free transfer.

‘I have seen Blackburn on television this season and I like the way they try and play,’ De Boe told the Mirror newspaper.

‘I want to know by the end of this month what my future is at the Nou Camp and I have always said I’d be very interested in a move to England if I was to leave Spain.’

Last month Rovers denied they were interested in signing the de Boer.
