Sky Bet understands Blackburn are closing in on a deal for former Liverpool and Fulham goalkeeper Tony Warner.

Warner is available on a free transfer after seeing out his contract at Tranmere and Blackburn are ready to offer him a surprise return to the Premier League.

Rovers are in the market for goalkeeping reinforcements after seeing Frankie Fielding join Derby and Jason Brown leave after his contract expired.

Ewood Park boss Steve Kean knows all about Warner having worked with him during his time at Fulham as assistant to Chris Coleman at Craven Cottage.

Kean is ready to add Warner to his squad as his No.3 keeper to provide cover for Paul Robinson and Mark Bunn.
