Blackburn Rovers remain in contact with Duncan McGuire over a possible summer transfer and have followed through on their promises, The Lancashire Telegraph understands.

The Orlando City striker was the subject of a January transfer saga which ended in disappointment for both the player and Rovers.

Rovers agreed a £2.3million transfer for McGuire, only for the board of Directors to pull out of the deal. The deal was then resurrected as a loan with a £3.6million buy option, only for a paperwork error to scupper the deal.

A club statement from the Rovers board promised to engage in talks with Orlando City about the possibility of resurrecting the deal this summer.

Gregg Broughton told The Lancashire Telegraph in March that Rovers were keeping tabs on McGuire and scouted him at the United States' friendly in France. However, no deal was certain because of uncertainty about Rovers' Championship status and the arrival of John Eustace.

Sources say that McGuire will leave Orlando City this summer. The Major League Soccer club offered the forward a new contract last week which was rejected with a move to Europe in his sights.

The 24-year-old has gone on to score five goals in the new season since his Rovers move fell through. That, understandably, has led to plenty of interest across Europe.

Most importantly, Rovers have stayed true to their word by tracking the developments with McGuire. Both Chief Executive Steve Waggott and Director of Football Gregg Broughton are understood to have been in contact about McGuire's situation.

It's understood that McGuire is open to the idea of moving to Rovers despite the errors that led to his failed move in January. Other clubs in England are also tracking him, with two unnamed clubs set to attend Orlando's match on June 16 against Inter Miami.

Any transfer is likely to cost in the region of £2.5m, closer to the initial figure Rovers had agreed, rather than the £3.6m negotiated as the loan-to-buy price.

No formal offer has been made by any club at this stage, nor is there a clear indication that Rovers will try and buy McGuire. However, they are fully abreast of the situation and nothing has been ruled out.
