Blackburn striker Matt Jansen is topping Neil Warnock's wanted list.Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Jansen is topping Neil Warnock's list of players he wants to replace Barry Hayles.
Former Fulham marksman Hayles strangely left to join Millwall in a £75,000 move despite only arriving at Bramall Lane in the summer.
Warnock said that he had failed to settle in South Yorkshire although Hayles has blasted the Blades boss for the way he was shunted out of the club.
Rovers marksman Jansen is now on the top of Warnock's list of players to bolster his attacking options after the departure of Hayles.
Jansen has struggled for regular football ever since a horrific motorcycle accident in Italy kept him out for much of the 2002/03 season.
Warnock wants Jansen on loan but the departure of Rovers boss Graeme Souness means that a deal is unlikely until a new man has been installed at Ewood Park.
Warnock does have contingency plans however, and has drawn up a huge list of players, believed to be around 21, who could be brought in.
Amongst them are a trio from Southampton with Brett Ormerod, Jo Tessem and Marian Pahars mooted as targets.
