Hoilett hints at change of heart, IF...
Rovers winger and contract rebel Junior Hoilett has hinted that he could stay at Blackburn Rovers... if Venky's show some signs they are willing to finally put their money/actions where their mouth has been.
Hoilett has been stalling over his new deal for months as he looks at options away from Ewood Park to further his career.
It was thought that getting him to sign a new deal was a lost cause due to the turmoil and volatile situation at Rovers but the players close advisers have today hinted that he could still remain at the club if the current owners finally show some intent to back up their early vision for Blackburn.
The Lancashire Telegraph are reporting - 'Meetings have been held in recent weeks between club officials and Hoilett`s representatives in a bid to agree a new deal, with his current contract expiring in the summer, and it is understood that remains the Canadian`s priority.
Sources close to the player have categorically denied yesterday`s reports that the player has handed in a transfer request and insist he would commit long term to the club, as long as they can see signs of Rovers progressing under owners Venky`s.
Hoilett has been at Rovers since the age of 13 and, having come through the youth ranks to emerge as an established Premier League performer, wants to continue his development at Ewood Park.
Rovers` Premier League relegation fears are a concern though, along with the lack of transfer activity, and Hoilett could wait until the summer before making a decision on his future, to see if there are signs of Venky`s fulfilling their early ambitions.'
As it currently stands he's a goner, time for the owners to change their tune and back up what they've said all along with some actual actions.
