Blackburn star Craig Conway is on the verge of signing a new contract at the club, someone close to the club with knowledge of the situation has told HITC.

Conway's existing deal is due to expire later this month and it was feared the player might leave Ewood Park this summer.

However, Rovers boss Tony Mowbray has moved to offer Conway a new deal to extend his stay at the club and the player is expected to put pen to paper soon.

Scotland international Conway has been at Blackburn since January 2014 after joining from Cardiff City.

The tricky winger has established himself as a big fan favourite during his time at Ewood Park and Mowbray was keen to have the experienced midfielder in his plans for next season in the Championship.

Conway made 28 appearances in all competitions last season, despite seeing his time blighted by injury.
