Blackburn Rovers are in talks with Kyle McFadzean about a new contract and the defender wants to stay at Ewood Park.

The 37-year-old signed from Coventry City on a short-term contract in the January transfer window. He is one of four players who are out of contract this summer, though Rovers have 12-month options on Tyrhys Dolan and Sam Gallagher.

Both McFadzean and Eustace have previously stated that they'd like to agree terms for next season and those discussions are ongoing.

Speaking to The Lancashire Telegraph, McFadzean confirmed that the club are in talks with him over a deal for next season but he has also had several offers from elsewhere.

"We are speaking at the minute, I've also had a few offers from back at home," McFadzean said.

"I'm open to it, we will see what happens. We've had talks this week and hopefully, we can get something sorted.

"I want to stay but you never know in football. It makes it harder because I've had some local teams that have offered me deals as well.

"We'll see what happens but I'd like to stay so I'd like to get that sorted. 

"I want to get it sorted as quickly as possible, then I can focus on next season. I want to see where my future lies.

"He's (John Eustace) told me he wants me to stay and that's a big thing for me. We'll see what happens. First and foremost, it has to be right for me and my family.

McFadzean played a crucial role in wins at Leeds United and Leicester City which, ultimately, played a huge part in Rovers staying in the Championship. The experienced defender has brought just that to a young squad.

Eustace has spoken about ensuring the balance of Rovers' squad is right, with more experience needed to help guide the talented academy graduates within the first-team set-up.

McFadzean believes he can offer that to Rovers and also lay regularly after a full pre-season. The defender had a three-month break between Championship starts this campaign which he believes stunted his season.

"I feel like I have a lot to offer. I think I can improve players and I have a lot to offer. Not just on that side but playing-wise as well," he explained.

"I think I've got plenty more to offer. I think a good pre-season and coming back really fit will help as well.

"I back myself, I played my part a bit this season and I always back myself no matter what. I feel like I can still help and play for Blackburn Rovers regularly next season."
