Jon Dahl Tomasson says he received plenty of helpful advice from supporters at the club’s open training session – with incomings the main focus of conversations.

Rovers opened their doors to supporters who watched an hour of training, and then had autographs signed by the players and head coach Tomasson.

The Championship season gets under way against QPR on Saturday, and with Rovers having brought in one new face this summer in Callum Brittain, there is a desire from supporters to see more arrivals.

With Premier League clubs returning from their overseas tours, Rovers expect more players to be made available which will offer up opportunities for incomings, and also speed up the market.

That comes after the club struck a season-long agreement with Liverpool for midfielder Tyler Morton, though that is currently on hold due to injuries within Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

“There should always be movement within the squad. You need the right dynamic in the dressing room if you want to be successful,” Tomasson said.

“The Premier League starts a bit later, all of those good players maybe we could have a good opportunity to sign some of them.”

Tomasson said his interactions with supporters at the open day was ‘friendly and positive’ and added: “I got a lot of good advice!”

Plenty of questions will have centred around the future of Ben Brereton, who continues to attract transfer interest, including from West Ham United.

Tomasson joked at the weekend that he would make the 23-year-old coffee and breakfast every morning should he sign a new deal.

But heading into the final year of his contract, speculation is only set to intensify, with reports that the Hammers sent scouts to watch Brereton in the 1-0 friendly win over Lincoln City, something he head coach understands.

“Ben is a great player and clubs want great players,” Tomasson said.

“At the moment he’s a Blackburn Rovers player and he’ll do well for Rovers.

“I have a great relationship with the boy, I’m enjoying seeing him on the grass every day doing the best for the club, for the team and he’s a great player.

“Of course I would love him to stay but I understand how football works.

“Great players come and go.”

Callum Brittain was the first signing of the Tomasson era, with director of football Gregg Broughton tasked with bringing more through the door.

“At the moment we’ve got one player,” Tomasson added.

“The club needs to provide those players.

“My job as head coach is to work with the players every day, young players and older players, but you want good players of course.

“We lost quite a few, some talented players, some players who played a lot of minutes.

“When you look at our squad now it’s very young, they’re doing a great job, you see them flying around the pitch every day.

“You also need some experience, when it’s getting tough, and it’s about getting in quality players in the right position.

“Quality is number one, age is the second part, and we lost a lot of players as well.”
