McCarthy ready to quit Rovers
Benni McCarthy wants to leave Blackburn and will seeking a January move in a bid to revive his career, according to his agent.
The South Africa striker has struggled to hold down a regular first-team place this season, making just one start in ten league games, while he has failed to score for Sam Allardyce's team since the start of the new campaign.
McCarthy, 31, will also need to play more regularly if is to harbour hope of representing his country at next year's FIFA World Cup™ finals meaning an Ewood Park exit could be on the cards.
"Yes, Benni wants to leave Blackburn," said his agent Rob Moore. "He has not been given the chance to show his worth this season in the Premiership and there's no denying that it seems like he is not the type of player Sam Allardyce is looking for."
Moore revealed that McCarthy's countryman Elrio van Heerden, who joined the club in the summer, may also be searching for a new club in a bid to boost his Bafana Bafana chances.
Moore added: "This has been a bad season at Blackburn for both Elrio and Benni; neither seem to be the kind of player that fits into the Blackburn system and both need to move on in January."
