‘Excuses’, ‘Incompetence’ – These Blackburn fans react to transfer admission from key figure



Blackburn CEO Steve Waggott has admitted that Josh Maja was the club’s top transfer target in the summer to replace Adam Armstrong.

All connected to the club knew that they faced a major battle to keep hold of the ex-Newcastle man, who enjoyed an outstanding campaign last time out. Such form attracted top-flight attention, with Southampton eventually finalising a swoop for the attacker.

However, Rovers failed to bring in a new attacker, with Waggott explaining to Lancashire Live that the club wanted Maja but an agreement couldn’t be reached with Bordeaux.

The CEO also hinted that a move for the striker could be revisited in January, with Tony Mowbray’s men still short on options up top.
