thumbnail Hello,

The 22-year-old free agent looks set to leave Ewood Park, with Borussia Mochengladbach interested, despite a "very good offer on the table" from his current employers

Blackburn manager Steve Kean has revealed that Junior Hoilett has rejected a “fantastic” deal to remain at Ewood Park.

The 22-year-old's contract expired at the end of last season and is widely expected to leave the Championship club, with Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach thought to be close to clinching the attacker's signature but a move appeared to hit the buffers.

And Rovers boss Kean has insisted that all involved are doing their upmost to keep the Canadian winger at the club but admits that the decision is ultimately down to the player.

"We have said many times, Junior is out of contract and it is his prerogative where he signs," the manager told Sky Sports News.

"We had a very good offer on the table for him. Wherever he decides to play his football, we wish him all the best.

"We felt we made a fantastic offer to keep him. He is a player who developed to a very high standard at our club."

Hoilett scored seven goals and provided seven assists in 2011-12 and has been linked to a number of teams abroad along with Premier League sides QPR and Sunderland.
