He can and has played CB in his career and any additional cover there would be welcome. Also anything that pushes Evans and Smallwood further towards the exit door is excellent business imo. Worth a punt on a 12 month deal 

From what I've seen he's more of an attacking midfielder, probably play on the left or right side of the attacking three behind a striker. Reports  here in Germany seem to think he will likely sign. Would be surprised if he could play as a championship standard defender.

He also refused to play in the game(s) that decided Hamburg would be relegated for the first time in their history! Can't remember what his reasons were though.

Thing Bennett is the best option we have of standing in for Travis or Johnson when injured as that was where he has performed best. Allows a proper rb to play too. Sign a defender, and let Bennett cover midfield more. Appreciate won't happen as Bennett has to start.

The Cairney replacement finally about to arrive? Holtby, if motivated, is a top player at this level.

Don't we already have Dack and Rothwell who can play the Cairney AMC role though?

I am always in favour of class players which is why I gave Rodwell the benefit of the doubt for so long.

If Holtby produces for Rovers, we have a player of Premier League class and there are not many at Ewood we can say that about.

A good player when HSV were in the Bundesliga the season before last. Lost form last season. 

Has trained with Rot Weiss Essen recently.

HSV are a basket case of a club who are only now looking capable. They are a bit of a joke in Germany so there could be a million reasons why it didn't work out for him. 

Likes making forward runs. Not a defensive midfielder. On his day, much better than any player we have now.

Deep lying pass-picker, technically gifted. 

Could be coup. Let's hope it's another triumph for our under the radar scouting network.

Dack plays off the striker or even false 9 at the moment. Rothwell mostly plays on the wing and neither are left footed so I wouldn't compare them to Cairney and Holtby.

Mowbray said in the LT today that we also looked at re signing Lucas Joao.

Our striking search seems to have lacked a little imagination this summer, were Marvin Emnes, Anthony Stokes and Fode Koita also considered?!

Still feel like a prolific striker could have been the key, Gallagher is both the most underwhelming signing IMO that we made this summer and also the only one that cost a transfer fee. The other 6 look in the main to have very much improved us.

Still think Graham is out on his own as our best striker, regardless of age.

We do usually seem to have a small gene pool when it comes to recruitment. That’s why the Holtby signing is so interesting. A real wild card - and potential joker in the pack by the looks of things.

didn't we look at him in the same summer as we bought Brereton instead?

Joao let Mowbray down in the relegation season, him and Emnes just played when they could be arsed. i.e when Utd came to town.
