Brown has scored 69 goals in his career, 23 of them coming for Doncaster

Incoming joint-Doncaster owner John Ryan says forward Chris Brown has been offered a deal to sign for Blackburn.

The 29-year-old striker has been with Doncaster since 2011 and scored nine goals in 43 appearances last season.

Ryan told BBC Radio Sheffield: "We have unfortunately lost (Mark) Duffy and Chris Brown as they had to take a 50% wage cut.

"Chris Brown has been offered 10 grand a week by Blackburn, you can't compete with that."

Brown began his career as a trainee at Sunderland and had loan spells at Doncaster and Hull, before a move to Norwich for £325,000 in January 2007.

A year later he joined Preston and signed for Doncaster on a free transfer in July 2011.
