Gary Bowyer reveals that the Blackburn Rovers board have given him the green light to sign more players this summer.

Blackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has revealed that his priority for the remainder of the transfer window is to find more defensive options.

Injuries to Matt Kilgallon and Tommy Spurr have encouraged Bowyer to return to the market for a defender, and he has confirmed that the board are keen for him to strengthen his squad.

"I've spoken with the board over the weekend and that's something we're going to try to look at and see who we can bring in," the Blackburn boss told reporters.

"We're not blessed with numbers in terms of the defensive department, we're left with four senior defenders, then you've got youngsters in Jack O'Connell and Yann Songo'o who went out last season and got loan experience."

Blackburn have been linked with another move for Manchester United defender Michael Keane, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Ewood Park.
