Rovers are hopeful that out of contract pair Craig Conway and Danny Graham will sign new deals to remain at Ewood Park.

And the club are also working hard on new deals for a number of their promotion winning side as Tony Mowbray shapes his squad ahead of next season.

Conway is expected to put pen to paper on a new one-year deal and extend his stay in East Lancashire in to a sixth season.

Graham, who scored 17 goals to help fire Rovers back into the Championship, has also stated his intentions to remain at the club and talks remain ongoing with the 32-year-old.

With Rovers’ hierarchy now back from India following several meetings with the club’s owners, they are hopeful of pushing forward with transfer targets as well as securing extended stays for their current players.

Rovers chief executive Steve Waggott said work is underway in the pursuit of key transfer targets.

“Two (Conway and Graham) we are in discussions with now,” Waggott told the Lancashire Telegraph.

“We’re trying to get them done as quickly as possible and there are one or two others who we are looking to extend contracts with.

“That will help protect our commercial assets as well as retaining the quality of players.”

League One player of the year Bradley Dack, defender Darragh Lenihan and midfielder Richie Smallwood are among those in discussions with Rovers over extended deals.

Dack only signed a four year deal last summer following his move from Gillingham but a new contract will reflect his standing within the current squad and fend off any possible interest in the 24-year-old.

Lenihan and Smallwood meanwhile, are just two of the players coming in to the final year of their current contracts.

Several other players have penned extensions within the last 12 months as Rovers try and build for the future.

And Waggott says the new deals are a combination of rewarding players for their success in achieving promotion and protecting their key assets.

He added: “They are part of the journey and they deserve to be rewarded.

“We’re looking at all of those and looking to get them done quickly as possible.

“There are ongoing discussions with their agents and then we have key targets who we are driving in to and looking if we can go quickly.”

Boss Mowbray has spoken with agents of potential targets after his return from India.

Discussions have also taken place with a number of Premier League clubs over potential loan deals for their young players.

Manchester City midfielder Jacob Davenport is thought to be one player under consideration following a successful stint with Burton Albion in the Championship in the second half of last season.

Rovers are expected to have a competitive budget for the 2018/19 season which will include money for permanent paid for signings, as well as scope for free transfers and loans moves.
