Speaking to the Blackburn Rovers official club website,  manager Tony Mowbray has said that the club need to bring in “a few more” new players ahead of the new season, which starts on August 3rd.

Blackburn Rovers have brought in former England international Stewart Downing, midfielder Bradley Johnson from fellow Championship side Derby County and former Rovers loanee Sam Gallagher this summer, but manager Tony Mowbray is not looking to stop there.

Mowbray is hoping to bring in some more new faces before the start of the new season as Rovers prepare for a campaign in which they hope to improve on last season’s 15th place finish.

“It never stops,” said Mowbray. “It’s not as if we only do one and get that one and then move on to the next one.

“They’re all going at the same time, it’s just that they happen faster or slower.

“Sometimes you have a target and for whatever reason that target disappears off the radar – somebody else signs him or he signs a new contract or the club refuses to sell him – and you have to move on to the next target.

“That’s happened once or twice. We’re just moving on, we’re trying to get to where we want to be.

“We need a few more players and hopefully in the next few weeks those players will arrive and then we’ll go to battle in the Championship and give it our best shot.”

Blackburn are in the market for another goalkeeper after the departure of David Raya to fellow Championship side Brentford. The club will also look to bring in defensive reinforcements with Jack Rodwell and Paul Downing both leaving Ewood Park this summer.
