Hoilett talks can wait

Hoilett talks can wait

Rovers manager Steve Kean has revealed that contract talks with Junior Hoilett have not been forgotten but they have been put on hold until the end of the season.

Hoilett has been Blackburn's best player since January and there was a bit of surprise when he wasn't amongst the host of names signing new deals over the last few months.

Hoilett's deal runs out in the summer of 2012 but it is known that Hoilett wants to stay at Ewood Park.

But Kean will make him wait till the summer.

Kean spoke to Sky Sports and said - 'What I don't want to do is get into contract negotiations now and take away from the type of form he's in.'

'Let's just keep him playing like that and then, come the end of the season, sit him down and agree a new long-term deal.

Definitely first priority at the start of the summer - he is turning into a key player.

1st task as soon as the season is up. No matter what division we are in we need to work our asses off to keep him on. IF we do go down (I think we will scrap and stay up) we will need the likes of Hoilett to help us come straight back up.

He has come to the table with great perofrmaces during Kean's reign and should be rewarded with a better deal, more than players like Roberts should of been, However he is currently under contract and I can't see any panic to re-new at this stage, the summer is fine, and we have stood by the player for many years so can't see any real reason why he wouldnt sign a deal come the summer

It's ok saying he should stay loyal to us, but if we do go down he will leave and rightly so, he is too good for the Championship. We need to get him signed up A.S.A.P. so that at least if he does leave, we will get a decent fee for him.

If we get relegated then I expect Hoilett and host of others will be out the door quicker than you can say SEM are self serving locusts, with a year left on his contract we won't get much for him, so either tie him to a longer deal or be honest with the fans and tell us he's off in the summer.
