STEVE Kean is confident his foreign imports will quickly find their Premier League feet after insisting Blackburn Rovers’ global summer transfer policy won’t prove their downfall.

The Rovers boss has yet to add any English top flight experience to his squad so far this transfer window and, with more recruits from abroad set to sign, concerns have been raised over a lack of Premier League nous.

Ahead of tomorrow’s visit of Everton, Greek-American centre back George John will complete a medical today to finalise his switch from FC Dallas while Montenegrin winger Simon Vukcevic should also finally receive clearance to formalise his move from Sporting Lisbon - having trained for the first time yesterday.

Kean was also hopeful of agreeing personal terms with Hoffenheim’s Bosnian striker Vedad Ibisevic last night but, if that failed, he would resume talks with Ajax’s Morrocan frontman Mounir El Hamdaoui today.

The Rovers boss has already added Serbian Radosav Petrovic, Brazilian Bruno and Scot David Goodwillie to his summer ranks this campaign and has full backing for his multi national recruitment process.

He said: “It will take a bit of time to bed them in. The way we train though fits them in quickly, you saw that with Petrovic on Wednesday night.

“I think we can bed them in pretty quickly. You can gel them pretty quick. We are very big on team spirit and very big on where the lads live.

“We have got a full time liaison officer that gets them into the proper areas, gets their families settled and gets them speaking the language as quickly as possible. That is vital. We have a good dressing room and the senior lads will hope these come in.

“You work on your recruitment and you are trying to get players in the club who are going to be a success. You are never going to sign someone you think will be a failure.

“Anyone you bring in to the club, like John, like Vukcevic, like Petrovic, like Goodwillie, you think they will be really good players for the club “The ones we have bought and paid sizeable salaries for I think will be exceptional players for the club. It doesn’t matter where they come from.”

Ibisevic, 27, remains Kean’s main striking target as he looks for that natural goal scorer Rovers have been searching for the last couple of seasons.

A fee has been agreed with Hoffenheim and talks are ongoing with the player, although Kean admits time is running out to seal the deal, with El Hamdaoui another option.

"We've got permission to talk to him,” Kean said of Ibisevic. “We're trying to get personal terms agreed and then accelerate it to a medical.

"He had a very good record until his first knee injury. Then since then he's had another little injury. He's not played as much recently. But before all that he'd had a very good goal-scoring record.

"If it doesn't get done today then we'll probably move on to the other one. I had a good meeting with the other player and he's a player that will move on if not to us then to another big club in Europe. It was a good meeting.

“It won’t be both though. We are looking at one of the two.

"We need someone with a track record of scoring goals. You look for someone with a goal every two games then you look at all the different markets for that.

If they have years of experience of that in the Premier League then obviously they are very expensive. We have looked at different markets, we want someone who can hit the ground running and score goals for us.

“I think goal scorers are goal scorers wherever they play. It is a habit in any league. If you can get the right one with a nose for goal that's a good habit these players in but they will obviously cost a few quid.”

Kean meanwhile is ready to move into the loan market next week with another midfielder and centre back potential targets.
