Henley gets new Blackburn Rovers deal

Young Rovers' star Adam Henley has signed a new deal with the club.

Henley, 17, has put pen to paper on a two-and-a-half-year professional contract.

Manager Steve Kean said: "Adam has shown great ability and maturity to emerge as a key member of the senior squad, particularly in recent weeks.

"We are delighted that he has signed professional terms with us and believe he can go on to have a very bright future."

Henley made a heroic last-minute clearance at Anfield on Boxing Day to help earn Rovers a point against Liverpool on what was his full Barclays Premier League debut.

A regular youth international with Wales, he was part of the Rovers squad for the summer Asia Trophy in Hong Kong and has since figured in first team action at Wigan and Sunderland.

He is expected to keep his place at Old Trafford tomorrow when Rovers tackle champions Manchester United, but has yet to feature in a senior match at Ewood Park.

Meanwhile, Rovers have nine players on the sidelines for the trip to United, manager Kean adding: "It doesn't get any tougher than Manchester United away, particularly given their recent form - two successive 5-0 wins.

"We have got to take encouragement from Liverpool and if we can maintain defensive discipline then we are always in with a chance because we have scored in every Premier League away game this season."

Congrats to Adam but why only a 2 1/2 year deal, he's only 17 for gods sake sign him on a long term 4 or 5 year deal and then give him improved terms partway through them if deserved, we don't want another Phil Jones to happen.

These young lads have done really well for us and seem to be in a higher pecking order than some of the recent signings and rightly so. The previous administration did well to get this pool of young players together.Kean has done well to blood these players if nothing else. It's a pitty we have wasted money on previous signings thus adding to the financial problems. It's a pitty we won't be able to reap the benefit of these players as they are sold off. Due to lack of finance, what a mess. We should be able to keep these young players because It will not be a surprise if this present conveyor belt of young talent does not dry up soon.

Asset stripping
What is asset stripping?

Asset stripping is taking company funds or assets of value while leaving behind the debts.

Company directors transfer only the assets of one company to another and not the liabilities. The result is a dormant company with large liabilities that cannot be met and it has to be put into liquidation

Stripping of company assets is normally done for two main reasons:

The fraudsters deliberately target a company or companies to take ownership, move the assets and then put the stripped entity into liquidation
"Phoenixing" - directors move assets from one limited company to another to 'secure' the benefits of their business and avoid the liabilities. Most or all the directors will usually be the same in both companies. This usually arises as a way of 'rescuing' the assets of a failing business rather than targeting a company
Where can I get more information?

Suspected phoenix firms and asset stripping are investigated: by the

Financial Services Authority
Companies Investigation Branch, (part of the regulatory arm of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills).
Should I report to the SFO?

We only conduct investigations into asset stripping where the seriousness and complexity meets our acceptance criteria. If you have information, then please submit as much information as possible at: https://report.sfo.g

That seems to be correct, what state is the club in though, if they can't afford to sign a young lad up on a 4 or 5 year deal though.
Yes he will be on decent money now but it's not like he will be one of the highest earners at the club.

It's a simple business analogy, if a business needs more stock and knows by buying a million at a time they get the product for £1 per unit. If they dont have the funds to buy that many, they may get 500,000 at 1.20 per unit. We don't have the funds to pay the wages of even the up and comming players. We are in a REAL mess and I think early new year the full scale of this will be out.

Venky's have taken us to the cleaners and we need them out ASAP.
