Blackburn are no strangers to the use of the loan market as this has been used, to our benefit with players coming in, successfully in recent seasons and taking this route again for next season isn’t being ruled out.

With the financial position as it is at Ewood Park we’ll be limited to free agents and loan moves for any players, although still within the parameters of our FFP restriction mind, to boost the squad.

Gary Bowyer’s revealed that we’ll take this route again, commenting in the Lancashire Telegraph.

‘We’ll certainly be looking at the loan market but frees are a lot easier at this moment in time because decisions have been made by clubs and we know who they don’t want.

‘Loans are a little bit more difficult, especially where we would look to get them in from, in the Premiership.’

Bowyer’s left in little doubt that as the summer unfolds players will become available, on loan; that would interest him.

We’ll have to wait for these details though with him calling for patience in the transfer market, in particular that area of it.

‘Those clubs will be looking at who they can bring in and the disadvantage of this transfer window is that it continues well into the season. That means the Premiership boys are a little bit reluctant to let somebody go out on loan at this moment in time.

‘But with the money that is available to Premiership managers now, they can go and buy someone for millions of pounds, and that might eventually free up somebody to go out on loan. But we’ve just got to be patient with that one in terms of the loan market.’

Tom Cairney and Rudy Gestede were both fine additions in this area before eventually coming to Ewood Park on a permanent basis.

One that could well return, following his brief yet successful loan spell last season, is West Ham’s Doneil Henry but that’s dependant on Slaven Bilic’s first-team plans with him following his arrival as former Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce’s replacement.
