After making Ben Brereton his seventh summer signing on Tuesday night, Tony Mowbray has admitted it's been a great window so far for Rovers.

Brereton joins Joe Rothwell, Jacob Davenport, Kasey Palmer, Adam Armstrong, Jack Rodwell and Harrison Reed in taking the tally to seven fresh incomings in the window and Tony is thrilled by the business.

He's also delighted to have been backed by the Owners, as he expected following his trip to India to meet them just days after the end of the 2017-18 campaign.

"I've been saying from day one that my dealings with the Owners have had lots of integrity, lots of honesty, lots of conversations about where we want to go and what we want to do," Tony told iFollow Rovers.

"I hope they feel that I will manage their money as if it's my own and not waste it.

"So when a deal like this (Brereton) comes along, it's a long-term deal for us, even though it's a short-term deal that will transfer into a long-term deal.

"We have to remember that in four years time, this boy will only be 23 years old - like Bradley when we signed him.

"He's just a kid really, so he's got all the time in the world to develop into the footballer that we know he will be and he's hopefully going to help us progress our club forward over the next few years."
