Tony Mowbray planning to build with Bradley Dack

Blackburn Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has reassured the club’s fans that no club has bid for midfielder Bradley Dack as he looks to build a promotion-winning squad.

Recent rumours suggest a number of clubs are looking at the playmaker after an impressive start to his Rovers career.

He joined from Gillingham in June for £750,000 and the 24-year-old has already scored 11 times this season.

Dack has helped Rovers climb into second in the League One table and Mowbray is adamant the club will look to build their team around the likes of Dack.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “There has been no contact, no offers, no interest. “The disappointing thing for me is that the potential is there to unsettle the player.

I will be open and honest with all of my players and tell them if there’s something there and this is our decision on it.

“We wouldn’t be welcoming any offers. My relationship with the owners is quite strong at the moment, they know my thoughts that we’re trying to develop a team that is going to put some pride back in the football club, win games and bring the supporters back and they feel proud to support the team.

“You don’t do that with any longevity when you sell your better players. The plan would be to build a team that everyone can be proud of and not sell anyone.”

Blackburn take on Northampton on Saturday and are as short as 1.40 to win as they look to put pressure on league leaders Wigan Athletic.
