Blackburn Rovers to keep a keen eye on Belgian at EURO 2024 amid potential cash windfall

Blackburn Rovers will receive an add-on fee if former ‘keeper Thomas Kaminski makes his debut at EURO 2024, the Lancashire Telegraph has said.

Blackburn Rovers saw goalkeeper Kaminski depart the club last summer, moving on from Ewood Park to join Luton Town following their promotion to the Premier League.

The Belgian shot-stopper signed for a reported £2.5m plus add-ons, ending his time in Lancashire after three years.

Kaminski was Rob Edwards’ go-to man in between the sticks all season, playing in all 38 top-flight games. Now, he heads to Germany with Belgium for EURO 2024, and it could put Rovers in line for a cash influx.

The Lancashire Telegraph reports that Blackburn Rovers will receive a further transfer windfall if Kaminski is to make his competitive Belgium debut at the tournament this summer. His only appearance to date has been in a friendly with Mats Sels and Koen Casteels also battling for the starting spot.

The total sum is not mentioned, but it will be a welcome boost for Rovers regardless.

Who is this?

A keen eye on Kaminski

Blackburn Rovers would have been wishing their former goalkeeper well at the European Championships regardless, but with this add-on in place, they’ll be hoping to see Kaminski make his competitive bow for the club.

He’s been in a squad plenty of times before but has mainly been serving as a back up, so perhaps the windfall won’t come this summer.

If it does though, it will be welcomed by Rovers and manager John Eustace with open arms.

The club haven’t exactly been flush in recent seasons with careful business done in the transfer market. Loans and free transfers have been utilised and that will more than likely prove to be the case again this summer.

The summer ahead

Blackburn Rovers and Eustace will know improvements are a must this summer.

After narrowly surviving in the 2023/24 campaign, pre-season will be vital and they will have to be smart in the transfer market too. The over-reliance on talisman Sammie Szmodics can not be repeated, so adding attacking threat is a must.

Defenders are sure to be on the radar too with Scott Wharton out for the long-term and question marks still surrounding the future of veteran centre-back Kyle McFadzean. Another goalkeeper may be needed too amid rumours of a Leopold Wahlstedt sale.

A financial boost from a Kaminski add-on would be welcomed, but Rovers won’t be counting on it.
