The manager of Blackburn Rovers, Gary Bowyer, has said that he and his Staff are working very hard to secure a few more transfer deals before the new season begins.
Blackburn has already made one signing so far i.e. of Chris Brown (the Doncaster forward). They are very close to making another one i.e. of Luke Varney whose contract at Leeds United has finished just recently.
Bowyer is very happy with the way he has gone about his transfer business till now, but, he wants to have a few more deals in the next couple of months so that he goes into the next season with a stronger squad.
Talking to an English newspaper yesterday, Bowyer said, “There’s a lot of work being done by us at the moment. We want to have a few more good players into the squad. We have been in touch with several agents, both here in England as well as abroad. We are hoping for the best, let’s see.”
“We have got a decent squad already, but, we can make it even stronger if we tighten a few departments.”
The Blackburn Rovers were not able to finish in top 5 in the second tier of English football during the previous season. They had ended up at no. 8 in the table with 70 points. They had won 18 out of their 46 matches, had lost 12, while, the remaining 16 matches were draws. Their target in the upcoming season should definitely be the promotion to the league.
In the 2013-14 Season, the three Championship teams which managed to win the league promotion were Queens Park Rangers, Leicester City and Burnley.
The Rangers had finished 4th, while, Leicester and Burnley had finished first and second respectively in the table.
