Ryan Hedges in action for Wales

Wales international Ryan Hedges is a man in demand ahead of the January transfer window.

Blackburn Rovers are lining up a move for the Aberdeen winger in January, according to Daily Record.

The Scottish club reportedly rejected a six-figure bid from Rovers in the last window. However, the English Championship side are set to make another move for the 26-year-old.

Middlesbrough also keen on Ryan Hedges

The Daily Record also report that Middlesbrough have also shown an interest in Hedges.

Hedges has been impressed for the Dons since making his way over to the Scottish Premiership on a three-year deal from Barnsley at the end of the 2018-19 season.

The Northampton-born winger made his international debut for Wales in 2017 and has since won three caps. He also represented Wales in the junior system.

Hedges has scored nine goals in 56 appearances for Aberdeen. He is currently in the final year of his contract with the Dons.

Tony Mowbray backs Blackburn to learn lessons from Derby win

Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray believes his side could take lessons from their win over Derby.

Rovers, who sit seventh in the Championship table, beat Wayne Rooney’s Rams 2-1 away on Saturday.

Speaking after the game, Mowbray said: “We should have scored two or three more goals but we didn’t and ended up hanging on at the death.

“We’ve dropped two two-goal leads so far this season, Luton and Coventry where we’ve been 2-0 up and only taken a point and it could have happened today.

“We were a bit frustrated in the dressing room at the end, it wasn’t a big celebration really, it was more of a ‘come on, we have to get better, we have to pick a pass when teams are gambling and throwing bodies forward and run away and score again to finish the game.’

“So we’ll keep working on that but I think we deserved the points on the balance of 90 minutes.”
