Blackburn Rovers may be ready to listen to offers for Stephane Henchoz which could open the door for a possible reunion with his old boss Roy Hodgson.

Rovers have not received an approach from Fulham, but Hodgson has been linked with a move for the 33-year-old Swiss international in the national press.

And the Lancashire Telegraph understands Mark Hughes may be prepared to do business after the veteran defender, who is battling back to full fitness after an Achilles operation, failed to cement a place at Ewood Park this season.

Hodgson brought Henchoz to Rovers back in 1997 and has worked with the experienced defender during his time in charge of the Swiss national team.
