It is understood that the Slovakian defender will arrive at Ewood Park tomorrow for a medical, and that if things go to plan, Sounesss may include him in the squad to play Villa on Sunday.

This could be a timely signing for Souness, with the imminent suspensions to Todd and Neill, and Bergs on going injury, Rovers have further defensive problems due to Short picking up a calf injury.

Souness has reportedly stated that Gresko can play either centre-half or full-back and will give him the options he have been looking for.
