Stefan Mols’ future appears to be away from Ewood Park, with the midfielder featuring for Burnley U23s as a trialist.
The 22-year-old hasn’t featured for Rovers since returning from his loan spell with Spanish third tier side CF Intercity, which was ultimately cut short in January following a lack of first-team opportunities.
He has been absent from the matchday squad in all five of Rovers U23s’ fixtures since his return from Spain, and looks set to move on this summer with his contract running out.
Mols started and played the full ninety minutes for Burnley U23s this afternoon in their 3-1 victory over West Bromwich Albion U23s.

Despite showing promise, Mols has not been able to make the step up to the first-team during his time with Rovers, making just one appearance in the 2017-18 League One season as a substitute in an EFL Trophy match.
Players moving from Category One academies to other similar set-ups in the same region is not uncommon practice, with Rovers acquiring a number of players from Manchester United and Liverpool in recent years.
Regardless of the Blackburn and Burnley rivalry, it is a chance for Mols to try and progress at another Category One club and one he deserves.
We’d like to wish Stefan all the best in the future.
