Kean expects transfer backing

Published Add your comment

Blackburn boss Steve Kean is confident under-fire owners Venky's will provide the money for much-needed defensive reinforcements in the January transfer window.

Many people expected conversations between executives of the Indian company and their manager this week to centre around Kean's position, but not so according to the man himself. Instead, the Scot presented his list of transfer targets to help relieve an injury crisis that has robbed him of Ryan Nelsen, Scott Dann, Martin Olsson and Gael Givet.

Kean said: "We spoke about the transfer window and the need to get defenders in and just where we are," said Kean. "It was a very positive conversation. It wasn't a case where there was just positions discussed, it was names."
