FORMER Sunderland defender Matt Kilgallon is close to joining Blackburn Rovers, according to reports today.

Kilgallon was released by Sunderland at the end of last season after the end of his three-year-a-contract at the Stadium of Light.

Several Championship clubs have been chasing the 29-year-old, who started just 21 league games during his time on Wearside.

But Blackburn appear to have won the race for the signature of Kilgallon, who has amassed plenty of Championship experience, predominantly at Sheffield United and Leeds.
