Steve Kean wants Eric Black to join him at Blackburn Rovers in the assistant manager's role.

Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean wants Eric Black to join the club as his assistant, according to The People.

Kean is currently without a right-hand man following Paul Clement's decision to join new Paris Saint-Germain coach Carlo Ancelotti in the French capital.

Black is out of work, having departed the number two role at Sunderland when Steve Bruce was sacked in December.

The 48-year-old, whose unemployment means that he would not command a compensation fee, is believed to be keen on a return to coaching at the earliest opportunity.
