Blackburn cancel Korean's trial

Blackburn have scrapped plans to give a trial to Korean striker Ahn Jung-Hwan.

The 30-year-old failed to report for training on Monday while Rovers chairman John Williams waited until Wednesday for Ahn to arrive.

And a club spokesman said Ahn's agents had failed to deliver the player as previously agreed.

"The picture has become too intricate and confusing and all parties have agreed to draw a line under the matter," said the spokesman.

Ahn, currently in France with FC Metz, had been invited to train with Rovers, but the Korean, one of the country's 2002 World Cup stars, had wanted to be sure he would sign for the club.

Blackburn chairman John Williams had said: "We were expecting him on Monday but having spoken to the people arranging it we are expecting him on Wednesday.

"We expect him to be training with us for two or three days."

Ahn's agent Yang Myung-Kyu told the Korea Times: "It was Ahn's own decision not to join Blackburn's training.

"Ahn thinks it's not proper to go to England when he can't be sure he'll sign with the club. He wants some clearer conditions about moving."
