BLACK­BURN Rovers man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Derek Shaw ad­mits that one more big sale will end the team’s Financial Fair Play em­bargo.

Rovers have been un­able to buy play­ers since De­cem­ber 2014 for not meet­ing the Foot­ball League’s Fair Play re­quire­ment. They man­aged to hold on to striker Jor­dan Rhodes at the end of the sum­mer win­dow how­ever, and Shaw’s hope­ful that will re­main the case.

“We’re prob­a­bly one as­set sale away from com­ing out of FFP, which would prob­a­bly be a player for un­der £5m,” he said.“I think the days of spend­ing big are prob­a­bly gone and (man­ager) Gary Bowyer has proven that with free trans­fers.”
