There’s more to come – Mowbray

Boss expects more new arrivals

Rovers boss Tony Mowbray is pleased with the progress he’s made in the transfer market, but has pledged that there are more signings to come.

The manager has brought in four new faces so far this summer, with Peter Whittingham the first to arrive at Ewood Park from Cardiff City, before Rotherham’s Richie Smallwood followed suit.

Two more midfielders arrived this week, with Bradley Dack completing a £750,000 move from Gillingham, quickly followed by the capture of Ben Gladwin from Queens Park Rangers.

Mowbray confirmed that Rovers are in discussions with other clubs over further potential arrivals, but pleaded for patience as they looked to get the deals done.

“There's more to come,” said the manager. “When I look at the board in my office, there are areas that we need to fill and we're working on that.

“We've got some irons in the fire and we're down the road with a few things. We’re talking to a few clubs at the moment about different players, but it’s never easy, because when the players aren’t even back in the building at some clubs it’s not easy for a player to learn that he’s going to move on, when he’s expecting to go back to his parent club, so let’s wait and see.

“They’re difficult conversations sometimes, but we’ve managed to get four over the line at the moment and hopefully over the next few weeks there’ll be a few more.

“There's a lot of hard work going on behind the scenes and hopefully we can keep adding as the weeks go on. We’ve tried hard to try and get as many in as we could before the team came back, to integrate them early on, and hopefully over the next week or two there will be another few signings and we’ll just keep adding.

“As we get closer (to the deadline), we'll add some loans as well. So hopefully some Premier League loans that can supplement what we've got and hopefully it will all come together.”

•Don't forget, Rovers fans have until tomorrow Saturday July 1st to take advantage of the club's price freeze on season tickets for the 2017-18 season.

With adult prices starting from just £279, it means supporters who buy or renew a season ticket can see all the action at Ewood Park for less than £13 per game.
