Blackburn are playing against SV Ried in their opening pre-season friendly match tonight due to start at 6:00 pm local time at the Keine Sorgen Arena, but the game has been put back 15 minutes so the game is about to start.
The news of the team has just been announced and Grant Hanley is not in the squad.
But the reason given is that he picked up a knee injury in training yesterday.
Grant Hanley – close to a Newcastle deal?
But it could also be that Newcastle are close to tying up a deal for him with the news today that we have gone in with a third bid – this time thought to be £4M – to try to get a deal done for the 23 times Scottish International.
Grant Hanley will take no part in today’s game after picking up a knee injury in training yesterday. Jason Lowe will captain the side.

Sky Sports is reporting Newcastle will sign Issac Hayden on a five year permanent deal and hopefully we can also tie up Grant Hanley to make that six signings so far this summer.
That would be something.
