Blackburn Rovers manager Tony Mowbray will be making plans for next season, with pre-season just under a month away, following a campaign that failed to deliver, with Rovers ending the season in 16th place, 14 points adrift of the play-off places.
One player who Mowbray may have to do without though is star midfielder Bradley Dack, amid interest from Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion, according to The Sun.
Following transfer interest in Dack back in January, from both West Ham and Crystal Palace, it had been thought that the Rovers board would put forward a new deal to tie the 25-year-old to Ewood Park, but with no new-deal in sight, a move away seems likely.
So should Blackburn fans be concerned following reports linking Villa and Brighton with Dack?
“I think so.
“Although I would be very surprised if Dack is still at Ewood Park by the end of the season so I imagine they are slightly resigned to losing him anyway.
“As long as they get a fair price for him it will be OK.”
“These rumours will always persist with a player like Dack and it is clear that it could go on for the rest of the summer.
“It’s always going to be a concern that your best players are going to get poached from higher up.”
“I’d be worried.
“Dack has been a colossus since joining. He was vital in their promotion and has maintained that level of performance in the Championship, which is no mean feat.
“Premier League interest means there’s money to be spent, and Blackburn could find themselves in a position where it is very hard to turn something down, which must be a worry for fans.”
