Highly-rated winger Harry Chapman is poised to leave Blackburn Rovers this summer.

The 23-year old has excelled while on loan at League One Shrewsbury Town, scoring six goals in 15 games, and Blackburn manager Tony Mowbray has been ready to welcome him back for pre season.

Chapman is in the final months of his contract and Blackburn had an option to extend by a final year but Sportsmail understands that despite Mowbray’s wish it will not be taken up by the Championship club.

Last week, Mowbray said: ‘Harry will come back here pre-season undoubtedly.

‘We have an option here on Harry and that will be triggered. Then we’ll see how he looks through pre-season, see what he’s doing and see how close we feel he is to impacting our starting XI and our team and we’ll make a call with it.

‘I’ll sit down and talk to him. He’ll play some pre-season games and hopefully, he becomes a big asset.’

However, Chapman, who was signed from Middlesbrough in 2019, is now set to become a free agent at the end of the season.

Shrewsbury are one of the clubs keen to sign him on a permanent basis but will now likely face plenty of competition for the England U20 international.
