With Rovers transfer picture certainly looking brighter at the start of the week it came as a relief to many after a few weeks of inactivity.
So without further ado let me present you with... some more names!
Yes, the waters have gone muddy again and with the raft of overseas talent we were linked with at the weekend comes in a distinctly more Premier League feel to this morning's gossip.
First up, it's former Rover Craig Bellamy. Bellamy will be finding a new club this summer after being told by Man City that he is about as much use to them as a fart in a lift and that they want his wages off their enormous outgoings bill.
City boss Roberto Mancini is apparently ok with letting him leave for about £4 million or so, so as long as Rovers can get Craig to swallow his pride and move about an hour from Manchester then he can become a Rover again.
Whilst we're at Eastlands the next man who we are scouting is very large and very strong centre back Nedhum Onuoha. This certainly seems to fit the bill as Onuoha has again been told he is not a requirement at City but he does carry the air of being a proper Premier League centre back.
A deal of about £4-6 million is being mooted and Kean needs a new centre back after Phil Jones left. Makes sense this one as Nedhum is quality.
And finally, the last name of interest this morning is Standard Liege hardman Axel Witsel.
For those who don't know Witsel he is something of a hard man, destroyer type midfielder and he is available from his current employers for about £8 million.
Witsel is a from the same club that spawned Marouanne Fellaini of Everton and comes with quite a bit of hype attached to him.
In short, he'd be most welcome at the club.
Overall though, I hope we get something a little bit more concrete to report as the amount of names flying around at present is nothing short of crazy.
