Blackburn owners confident of new arrivals
Tuesday 05 July 2011
Blackburn owners Venky's insist there will soon be new signings arriving at Ewood Park.
Phil Jones' departure to Manchester United last month is the only major piece of transfer business Rovers have been involved in so far this summer, while fellow defender Christopher Samba continues to be linked with a move away.
In terms of incoming personnel, striker Benjani Mwaruwari has claimed he will return to Blackburn for another season despite his contract expiring at the end of last term, and reports have suggested Tottenham frontman Robbie Keane could be a target.
Venky's chairperson Anuradha Desai has stressed the strategy is not to chase "big names" but is confident some deals will be tied up shortly.
"We are in search of some good strikers and defenders and that will be finalised in the next two weeks," said Desai, quoted in the Lancashire Telegraph.
"We are not running behind big names. Our selection would be a proper mix of young talent and senior players."
