Rovers have received no offers, or enquiries, from any club about trying to sign Bradley Dack.

Reports in the national press suggested that newly-promoted Aston Villa and Premier League side Brighton were eyeing moves for the 25-year-old.

Dack scored 18 goals last season, 15 in the Championship in his debut season at that level, and has impressed in his two years at Ewood Park. The former Gillingham man scored 18 as Rovers clinched promotion from League One as he was named as the division’s best player for a second time.

Dack signed a new deal at Rovers last summer, which still has two years left to run, and Rovers have no intention of selling their star man this summer.

A new contract offered earlier this year so far remains unsigned, but Rovers are keen to keep Dack at Ewood Park as they look to improve on last season’s 15th-placed finish.

West Brom were interested in Dack last summer, but theirs was the only bid Rovers have ever had for their top scorer.

One team who will be keeping a close eye on any possible bids for Dack is Gillingham who would be a slice of any transfer fee when Dack leaves Ewood Park.

Speaking this week, new Gills boss Steve Evans said: “If Bradley Dack does go, then that money will be added to the budget.”

Though Rovers won’t be encouraging any bids for Dack, a £750,000 signing in June 2017,who has 36 goals in 80 starts.

Villa have stepped up their preparations for their Premier League return with the signing of attacking midfielder Jota from second city rivals Birmingham, while Anwar El Ghazi could be set to turn his loan move permanent.

Though Rovers are yet to receive interest in any of their senior players.

Goalkeeper David Raya was linked with Championship rivals Brentford last month but nothing is yet to come of that.

However, the Bees could look to follow-up their interest in the Spaniard should they lose No.1 Dan Bentley who is said to be interesting Bristol City and has just 12 months left on his current deal.

Interest in Rovers’ crop of exciting young players is expected to be high, however.

Dan Butterworth, John Buckley and Tyler Magloire are expected to travel with the first-team to their pre-season training camp in Austria later this month before a decision is taken on whether they are kept around the first-team or allowed to leave on loan.

Rovers will also need to decide on the next steps for Brad Lyons and Sam Hart, back from loan spells with St Mirren and Southend, with 12 months left to run on their current deals.
