Gregg Broughton has confirmed Blackburn Rovers would have to offer fresh terms to Kyle McFadzean and John Fleck to extend their stays at the club.

Both players signed six-month deals in the January transfer window to take them until the end of the season.

Fleck's Rovers career lasted just 17 minutes after he was injured on his debut at Deepdale. The midfielder picked up a shin issue which has prematurely ended his season.

McFadzean, however, has enjoyed a greater impact. He started every game under Eustace until he was suspended after a red card against Plymouth Argyle. A groin issue kept him out of the Ipswich match before returning to the bench at Sunderland.

Broughton explained the club's strategy in the January transfer window and revealed there are no clauses in either player's contracts so new terms would need to be discussed.

"Both players are on six-month deals. We'd have to renegotiate a contract for Kyle and for John," Broughton confirmed.

"We knew we had to add things for this season going into January. We wanted to add experience, height into the back line and pace as well.

"I think we were successful with those things. Kyle has come in and had a big impact on the team and in the building as well. John has been very unlucky picking up such a significant injury on his first start for Blackburn Rovers.

"If you sign players as we did with Kyle and John where they aren't playing back-to-back, week-to-week, you know you're able to sign them because they aren't playing. 

"They wouldn't be coming to Blackburn Rovers in January so there is always a high risk when you do that. John's signing hasn't paid off and we're all gutted. He left a Premier League club to come here to play football. He didn't come to be on the bench or in the treatment room."
