Neill To Get New Deal
Blackburn Rovers have opened contract talks with defender Lucas Neill.
Neill has one year left on his current deal but Rovers boss Mark Hughes wants to tie up the 28-year-old Australian on a long-term deal.
Rovers chairman John Williams told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph: 'We have had preliminary talks with Lucas' camp so the process has started.'
The club is also negotiating with Tugay, Michael Gray and Paul Dickov.
