Tottenham defender Pascal Chimbonda is on the verge of a move to Blackburn after travelling to Lancashire for a medical this afternoon.
With left-back Stephen Warnock set for a transfer to Aston Villa manager Sam Allardyce has moved to find a replacement before letting the former Liverpool player leave.
"Stephen has had permission to talk to Aston Villa and we have got Pascal Chimbonda talking here," said the Rovers boss.
"I think we have to get a replacement before we let Stephen go so if Pascal gets done here I'm sure Stephen will get sorted out."
Allardyce, however, has dismissed links with Middlesbrough left-back Andrew Taylor.
