Rovers are set to finally see the back of Junior Hoilett over the next few days with QPR ready to announce the signing of the Canadian as soon as a figure can be agreed in compensation for the player.
The saga could still drag on with a tribunal possibly required to settle on a valuation of a guy who has been at Blackburn since he was 13. The possible inclusion of Jamie Mackie in a swap deal could also prove a stumbling block.
But as far as the remuneration Rovers are to receive for Hoilett, Kean wants fair value... as you do.
Kean told the Lancashire Telegraph - "We haven`t heard anything from Junior. I believe he has signed for QPR but that has not been confirmed yet.
"I think he has had a medical but we haven't been told that officially from QPR, we just heard on the grapevine. I don't know the process now. They might make us an offer for his registration but if not it might go to a tribunal.
"We feel we have played a large part in his development, we wish him all the best but it would have been nice if we had a call."
The recent case of Daniel Sturridge is an example of the tribunal system and Kean feels that should be used as a guide to making sure Rovers get some serious money for their former player.
"I don't know what the figure was for Daniel Sturridge, but I know it was a chunky figure. We have had Junior a long time, we have put a lot of time and effort in him and Im sure that will be reflected in the price.
"If lessons are to be learned, when we signed him a few years ago on a two year contract, if that had been a three or four year, he would still be our player. But that is a lesson learned."
Indeed Steve, if only you'd foreseen this last summer.
