David Jones: Blackburn are hoping to snap up former loan star as a free agent

Jones, who spent the final months of the 2012/13 campaign at Ewood Park, has been released by Wigan Athletic and dropped into the free agent pool.

Rovers would welcome the opportunity to bring him back into their ranks, but appreciate that the midfielder will have other options to consider.

Bowyer said in the Lancashire Telegraph: "David was excellent for us at the end of the season so we'll see if we can get something sorted.

"We're always hopeful but obviously he will have interest from other clubs."

He added on his transfer plans heading forward: "We are still working on things and hopefully it will hot up in the next couple of weeks.

"We want to get players in who the supporters will be proud to have wearing the shirt."

While looking to bring fresh faces into his squad, Bowyer has also moved to block an approach from Dundee United for Goodwillie.

The striker is out of favour at Rovers but he will not be returning for a second spell at Tannadice unless the terms on offer are improved.

Bowyer added: "The offer is not good enough and there are other clubs interested."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
