Rovers boss Tony Mowbray says he won't be desperate in the transfer market and says signing reinforcements that understand what it means to play for the club is crucial.

Danny Graham and Craig Conway both extended their Ewood Park stays this week, but the boss is yet to make any fresh moves for personnel as he looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.
But Mowbray isn't panicking and is keeping his options open before making his moves, keen to have quality over quantity ahead of Rovers' return to the Championship in 2018-19.
“We want to give out new contracts to some of last season’s squad," the boss began. "Just because I’ve been away, it doesn’t mean that everything stops, things are still going on behind the scenes.
“The secret is not to be desperate for any player because you always have option B and option C lined up as well.
“That’s the game we’re in and hopefully by the time the players return to pre-season we’ll have one or two more in."
And the supremo adds that any new capture will need to buy into the Rovers way of things, insiting that every recruit will have to be the right fit.
“We have plenty of formations available to us and the new faces need to learn, sit in team meetings and understand the demands of playing in this team and playing for this club.

"Things are moving forward all the time with regard to new signings."
