Blackburn boss Steve Kean has confirmed he sought immediate reassurances from the club's owner this week that there will be no problems with paying the players' wages.

A report at the weekend claimed Venky's, the Indian owners of Blackburn, had received a demand from Barclays bank for £10million to help to pay off the club's debts and that they could struggle to pay salaries in January. The club insisted there is "no financial crisis" and Kean said he had been personally reassured of that by Venky's head Mrs Anuradha Desai.

"I immediately spoke with the owner and categorically she has told me to get across to the players there won't be any problems financially on salaries or moving forward in the transfer window," said Kean.
