Tony Mowbray has revealed that Rovers could about to make their first move in the January transfer window after striking an agreement with a club for a loan player.

Rovers are yet to add to their squad this month, with 13 days of the window remaining, but Mowbray is hopeful that an incoming could be close.

Mowbray wouldn’t be drawn on the player’s identity, but a right-sided attacker is understood to have been identified.

Rovers moved up to 11th in the table with a thumping 5-0 win at Sheffield Wednesday, with Mowbray admitting there could be movement on the transfer front in the coming days.

The manager told the Lancashire Telegraph: “I think we’ve got a confirmation we can make on a loan deal.

“I’m not sure we’re going to spend lots of money. The potential is there to spend a bit of money, but only on the right player.

“That’s what I’m saying to the owners, there aren’t many players you can bring in who are going to guarantee anything.

“You can’t bring players in who don’t know how we play, the demands, don’t know the lads, and we’re going to win next week because this player is great.

“It doesn’t happen like that.

“If we can strengthen then we will. If we can find a very talented loan player who can come in and help then we should do.

“If can find the right player to add to our group then I think, as I’ve always said then we should try and strengthen in every window.

“That’s my job and responsibility to make the club stronger and move it on every window if I can.

“We’re striving to do that, but it’s not easy.”
