The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Ben Baker

BLACK­BURN boss Gary Bowyer says he is look­ing for­ward to bag­ging a few bar­gains this sum­mer at Ewood Park.

Rovers will be re­stricted to free trans­fers and loan sign­ings once the win­dow reopens as a re­sult of the club’s em­bargo for fall­ing foul of Fi­nan­cial Fair Play.

That will se­verely limit Bowyer’s op­tions, but he is not kick­ing his heels in frus­tra­tion – in­stead, the manager is hop­ing to re­peat a trick or two and strike up a few good deals.

“We’ve al­ready iden­ti­fied tar­gets we want to bring into the club and it’s just a case of how many we can do,” said Bowyer.

“The em­bargo stops you dreaming of spend­ing a mil­lion pound on a striker and it does re­duce your op­tions.

“It also means, even more so now, that the player you bring in has got to be the right player.

“But I think we’ve shown in the win­dows that we’ve been ac­tive in that we’ve man­aged to do that.

“What a free trans­fer Tommy Spurr has been. Matt Kilgallon makes that two. And then there’s Chris Tay­lor.

“So there are cer­tainly good play­ers out there and it’s just mak­ing sure we’re com­pet­i­tive and in there for them.”
