Kean tells Venky's to open coffers

Blackburn boss Steve Kean has sent a stark warning to the club's Indian owners that they will have to splash the cash in order to avoid a bleak Premier League season at Ewood Park.

Rovers were beaten 2-1 by Wolves in their home opener after Mauro Formica's debut goal was cancelled out by Stephen Fletcher's header and a fine strike from Stephen Ward.

Kean admitted Rovers currently have bids in for four players but says club bosses may have little choice but to increase the offers in order to attract the new personnel his side so badly need.

Kean said: "We are making realistic bids and they are not coming off. Maybe we will have to pay over the odds to ensure that we get people here.

"We have to speed up the process because I don't think we can go another couple of games having to play central midfielders at centre-half. We certainly need bodies.

"We've got 11 players who were on the books in one form or another that have left the club since last season and we've brought three in. We need to make sure we get a good number of players coming back in and make sure we have a competitive squad."

Kean was forced to shunt midfielder Steven Nzonzi into defence due to injuries to Chris Samba and Ryan Nelsen and his patched-up side proved no match for Mick McCarthy's impressive Wolves.
