Blackburn agree to release Jansen


Jansen keen to end Rovers stay

Matt Jansen's career statistics

Blackburn have agreed to release Matt Jansen after the striker became frustrated at a lack of first-team action for Mark Hughes' side.

The 28-year-old has started only 13 Premiership matches since his recovery from a 2002 motorcycle accident.


Chairman John Williams said: "Given Matt's contribution over the years we feel we should not stand in his way.


"He needs a new challenge and on behalf of everyone connected with the club we wish him well."


Jansen moved to Rovers from Crystal Palace for £4.1m in January 1999.


He was tipped to win England honours until a road accident left him in a coma for four days.


He recently revealed his desire to leave Ewood Park, saying: "This is the hardest - and yet probably the most sensible - decision I have ever made.


"I am not a troublemaker and I do not kick up a stink if I am not in the team but enough is enough."


Jansen has since been linked with a move to Championship club Preston.
