Sky Sports sources understand that unsettled forward El Hadji Diouf has been released by Blackburn.
The Senegal international has become increasingly unsettled over the past few months and was expected to leave the club over the summer.
The departure of Sam Allardyce from the Ewood Park hot-seat last season left Diouf frustrated, as he fell out of favour under new coach Steve Kean.
He was subsequently loaned out to Old Firm giants Rangers, and helped the Gers land the Scottish Premier League title during his time at Ibrox.
He was forced to return to Blackburn at the end of that spell, but delayed his return to pre-season training.
With his relationship with the club seemingly beyond repair, it was suggested that he would soon be on his way.
It is understood that Rovers have helped Diouf in his search for a new club by agreeing to terminate his contract.
