Blackburn fans have launched a new share investment scheme in a bid to buy the club from owners Venky's.

The Blackburn Rovers Supporters' Investment Trust, which has been created with the aim to bring the club into community ownership, is being spearheaded by Wayne Wild, director of WEC Group, a commercial partner and sponsor of the Barclays Premier League side.

Fan groups have blamed Venky's and manager Steve Kean for the club's demise, and with Rovers currently one place above the relegation zone, Wild believes the newly-created trust is a viable option to bring the club under fans' control. He said: "At some point, and maybe soon, we believe Blackburn Rovers will be put up for sale."
