Matt Jansen released by Blackburn

Last updated : 12 January 2006 By Nik Taylor

Blackburn Rovers have released Matt Jansen after the former Palace striker asked for his contract to be annulled.

The 28-year-old was one of England’s brightest striking prospects before suffering severe head injuries in a motorcycle crash in 2002.

Since coming back from those injuries, Jansen has started just 13 Premiership matches for Rovers.

The forward is now looking for a new club where he can enjoy more regular first team football.
