Kean takes Zonz stance
Steve N'Zonzi could find himself in a tricky spot if the move he craves does not end up materialising.
Zonz has handed in a transfer request at the club following relegation and a spat with the manager at the back end of last season, but Rovers have insisted they want full value for the man who initially cost them £400,000 from French side Amiens.
But Kean has today explained that if there are no serious bidders for his services then he will be expected to compete for a place at the club and he could yet see the scenario that he will play next season at Ewood Park... if he makes a statement confirming his commitment.
Kean told the Lancashire Telegraph - 'At this stage it is disappointing, but you never know, there might be no bids that match our valuation and Steven might then see the type of signings we are making and might end up still being here if he withdraws his request and makes a statement he wants to play for the club.
The situation could occur if no-one is ready to meet or come close to Rovers heavy valuation of £10m for the beanpole boy.
Kean continued - 'If no one met the valuation then I would hope he would respect the fact he has a contract.
'I would hope he would want to get his head down and work towards playing football.
'He is employed to be a football player, not a football trainer and at this moment in time, he doesn't want to play for the club.
