KEITH Andrews is in talks with Blackburn Rovers about his future – with Steve Kean refusing to rule out the Irish international having an Ewood Park future.

The midfielder has spent this season on loan at Ipswich Town but, having returned to Rovers on Monday, is now attempting to sort out his future.

It is understood a number of clubs, including Wigan, are interested in signing Andrews permanently and he is still expected to exit Ewood this month.

Andrews was the target for some Rovers boo-boys and he recently revealed that was why Kean was reluctant to involve him in the first team.

Kean said: “Keith is now in dialogue with the club, on Wednesday he was in dialogue with the directors. I think there’ll be interest from other places for Keith.

“He’s gone away and had a good loan spell but he’s still got 18 months on his contract here. If nothing happens then he’s still under contract.

“The fact he’s been out, played well, scored goals – and before that done well in internationals, he’ll be a part of things for us moving forward – if he doesn’t move.

“I don’t know if we will be asking for a fee for him. I pass that on to the directors to negotiate the exit or the purchase. I’ve got other things on my plate at the moment.”

Meanwhile Kean confirmed Paul Robinson’s return to fitness has given him a selection headache ahead of Fulham’s visit this afternoon.

The former England number one has been a regular for Rovers ever since signing from Spurs but Mark Bunn’s form in his absence due to a calf injury has given Kean food for thought.

Kean said: “Paul Robinson’s return will give me a good headache because I think Bunny has done great. The saves he has made he has not looked like a reserve goalkeeper.

“For Paul he has fully cleared his calf and knows there is a bit of pressure on him. That is what you would like, you would not want players picking themselves.”
