Kean thinks Rovers are close to deals
Rovers could be on the cusp of some success in the transfer market at long last.
Steve Kean has been on Sky Sports this afternoon keeping us all cheerfully updated with the news that Rovers are finally properly active in the market.
Kean told Sky Sports - 'We have got three or four (take your pick apparently) active bids out there - we are waiting for confirmation that the bids have been accepted,' he explained.
'We don't have to sell before we buy. We are trying to keep the majority of the players together.'
Kean also took time before tomorrow's pre-season Asia Cup match against Aston Villa to reassure fans that finances are in order and the days of selling before buying are over.
Kean added - 'We don't have to sell before we buy, we are trying to keep the majority of the players together.
'We have a fixed budget, but it's a budget that is competitive and that will bring in good-quality players.'
The Rovers boss also cleared up a quote he gave recently about Rovers ambitions but did point to a long term goal in the blue and white plans.
'I think it's been misquoted to say we're going to have Champions League football next season,' Kean said.
'That was never said. But trying to deliver European football for the club within three or four seasons is achievable. That's going to be the goal.'
