Gary Bowyer: Expects new arrivals before Sunday

Rovers have already brought in nine players this summer while talks with further transfer targets are ongoing.

"In an ideal world I'd love to get in three or four new faces, I really would," Bowyer told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"It's constantly ongoing and will be until the end of the transfer window.

Yann Songo'o is in talks over a deal after a successful trial, while Aston Villa have also accepted a bid for midfielder Barry Bannan but personal terms appear to be a stumbling block at the moment.

"It's still ongoing," he said about Bannan.

"These things take a little bit longer than managers want. We've just got to keep working hard at it and try to get things over the line."

UAE international midfielder Amer Abdulrahman has also been training with the club but is expected to return home in a couple of days time.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
