Clarets former loan striker, David Nugent looked to have given up on his Premier League ambitions, at least in the short-term after seemingly deciding to stay at Fratton Park and resurrect his career at Portsmouth.

Our former gaffer, Steve Cotterill now manager at Portsmouth looked to have convinced Nugent that his future would be best served in a Pompey shirt.

Cynical Clarets fans may well have suspected that Nugent accepted the easy option after realising that nobody in the Premier League appeared to want to take a punt on the 25 year old striker.

News broke yesterday though that suggests that maybe one Premier League club could now be about to upset the Hampshire happy apple-cart.

How would Clarets react to the thought of Nugent playing for Blackburn Rovers?

According to the Sunday Mirror yesterday, Rovers boss Sam Allardyce could be about to offer Nugent a Premier League lifeline and if there is any truth in the rumour it could be just the sort of move Nugent would relish.

Not only would this put Nugent’s Premier League ambitions firmly on track again but it would also involve the Huyton-born striker remaining in the North West of England something he has relished in the past.

Clarets fans might find that hard to stomach but I guess we have to move on and wish Nugent well in whatever he does next despite the apparant snub he has given the Clarets and the fact he might soon be wearing the dreaded blue&white of Blackburn.
