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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
