Nikola Kalinic's agent says it looks "impossible" that the striker will play for Blackburn again.

Nikola Kalinic's chances of playing for Blackburn Rovers again are "impossible", according to his agent Tomislav Erceg.

Ukrainian side Dnipro have reportedly offered £6m - the price that Rovers paid Jajduk Split for him two years ago - for the 23-year-old.

While the club's owners Venky's appear to be holding out for a larger bid, Erceg believes that Kalinic will not play for Rovers again.

Erceg said: "We have our fingers crossed something will happen in the next couple of days but we just don't know. It has gone on a for a long time and nothing has been sorted."

Kalinic is currently at home in Croatia rather than with his teammates in the Far East, where yesterday they lost 1-0 to Aston Villa in the Barclay's Asia Trophy.

"Nikola just wants to play football. It is a crazy situation because it looks impossible for him to play football at Blackburn," Erceg added.

Kalinic scored six goals in 20 appearances for Rovers last season.
