Kean expects fair price from Junior switch

Kean expects fair price from Junior switch

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.

I thought he was signing a new Rovers contract within the next 48 hours? Did Steve really lie?

Just a mistake I am sure. Oversight if anything ;)

I'd rather have Mackie on a straight swap
