Barry Bannan: Move to Blackburn has broken down

Blackburn boss Gary Bowyer has confirmed that talks between the club and Aston Villa midfielder Barry Bannan have broken down.

Despite having a bid accepted for the 23-year-old, Rovers have reportedly struggled to agree personal terms with the Scotland international.

"We had a bid and that was accepted, but we've not continued talks at this present moment in time," Bowyer told the Lancashire Telegraph.

"We're exploring all options, there might be a chance it might happen, if not we have to be prepared for it not happening.

"We've just got to keep as many plates spinning at the moment as we possibly can. We have a massive list and we're exploring all avenues at this moment but we are hopeful of bringing in certainly one or maybe two more."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
