Rovers to start talks with 'contract' players

Next port of call off the field for the Rovers and Sam Allardyce is to discuss what to do next over four out of contract in the summer players.

Rovers are still waiting for a decision on his new deal from Junior Hoilett but some talks are yet to start.

Negotiations have yet to start with David Dunn, Morten Gamst Pedersen, Steven Reid and Frank Fielding, something the Rovers boss and board want to start on.

Rovers problem lies in the fact that if news deals are not offered by January then all the players with six months left on their deals can start to negotiate with other clubs and Rovers risk losing them for free.

Personally we should get David Dunn tied down with haste as he has earnt a new deal in my eyes, the only delay I can see is the medical staff just making sure he can stay fit for a long period.

Steven Reid will probably have to wait till after January for a new Rovers offer as he needs to prove he can make a sustained comeback (initially at QPR).

Pedersen looks hit and miss and I would be suprised if Frank isn't a bit miffed at still being fourth choice keeper at Ewood.

Tough decisions to be made for sure.

could be an interesting few months in store as these things develop...

Junior owes us, so should sign his contract. Dunny wants to stay so let's get the contract in front of him. Reidy has the chance to prove his fitness with QPR, if he does then give him a deal (however, I'd be a little careful over the length of this!!) Personally I don't think that MGP hasn't earned a new contract, however, I'm not sure I'd want him to leave for FREE!! Fielding is a superb prospect but he's down the order at Ewood and I worry we'll lose him.

Maybe this will lead to a Jan sale for Pedersen?
Mikey Delap
Fielding is 3rd choice isnt he? Robinson, Brown, Fielding, Bunn? Bunn is out on loan, and wouldnt be supprised if he joins Shefield United for 1.5m in Jan or the Summer. Get them all contracts appart from gamst... maybe a 6 month extension? so we can get a better price for him?
rover23
true 23 but Bunn would still be called upon before Fielding would if Robbo/Brown got injured I suspect...
Mikey Delap
Cant believe we havent even started talking to Dunn yet. Should be signed up for the rest of his career. Maybe the thought that Dunny is a local boy and will wait til the last day of his contract before leaving us is in the minds of some, however, he deserves better....
