Rovers manager Gary Bowyer is set for talks in Pune over Rovers summer transfer plans.

The owners, who appear to have never heard of Skype, are to meet face to face with Bowyer to discuss the action plan for the summer – with a reduction of the wage bill and some economic but productive incomings very much the order of the day (again).

There is not expected to be a repeat of the now customary revolving door incoming/outgoing activity that has plagued recent transfer windows, but there will be a small amount of incomings to supplement an already well set first teams squad.

‘We can’t stand still,’ Bowyer told Sky Sports.

‘We’ve got to add and improve in certain areas.

‘We need to challenge the existing squad in order to push them further and improve them, but I wouldn’t expect anywhere near the amount of players we brought in last summer.

‘We have to reduce the wage bill.

‘Financial Fair Play is being talked about a lot and that is something we have to take into consideration.

‘We have players out on loan at the moment who might generate a bit of interest.

‘We might see one or two of them depart but if not, we have to deal with that and manage that.’

Rovers will again be judged by how well they can ship out a large backlog of excess wage baggage – with the likes of Leon Best, DJ Campbell and a ton of other fringe players all likely to be on the look out for new homes.
