The Championship side are hoping to persuade the 20-year-old forward into moving to Home Park on a season long loan deal before the closure of the transfer window on Wednesday.

"We have got seven strikers on the books," said Blackburn chief executive John Williams. "The general rule of thumb is four or five so we are a bit overloaded.

"Mark (Hughes) will be looking at whether it's better for him (Johnson) to go, or to stay with us.

"But Jemal has to be involved in some way. The ultimate decision is always with the player and whether he thinks he will best develop playing in someone else's first team."
