Blackburn: Rovers agree Santa fee

City boss Mark Hughes is keen to get the Rovers striker on board and he could seal a move within the next week, after Sky Sports claimed a £18million agreement has now been reached between the two clubs.

The Paraguay international has been holding out for a transfer ever since City failed with several bids for him in the January transfer window and now he looks to be on the verge of getting his wish.
There had been suggestions that it would take a fee in the region of £20million to activate a buy-out clause in his contract but such reports appear to be wide of the mark.
