Danny Graham could be convinced to snub Rangers and Celtic to rejoin Blackburn after Owen Coyle was confirmed as manager, according to a report.

Coyle has taken over the reigns from former manager Paul Lambert while Graham has been fielding offers from several clubs such as Wigan and Preston North End, as well as the Scottish rivals this summer.

Graham has been strongly linked with a reunion with former boss Brendan Rodgers at Celtic, but the Lancashire Telegraph now claim the striker is leaning towards a return to Ewood Park.

The 30-year-old spent the second half of the season on loan with Blackburn from Sunderland and produced some fine performances for them with seven goals in 18 Championship appearances.

It is believed the former Swansea forward is more than happy to listen to Coyle’s offer and wants his representatives sit down with the manager to hash out a possible deal.

Graham’s Sunderland contract is due to expire at the end of this month with the striker keen to move on from three bitterly disappointing years with the Black Cats.

The Englishman spent a majority of his time at Sunderland away from the Liberty Stadium with loan spells at Hull, Middlesbrough and Wolves before ending up at Blackburn this season.

In other Rangers news, Josh Windass has revealed the conversation he had with Mark Warburton that convinced him to sign for the Gers.
