If Blackburn Rovers supporters were struggling to sleep at night following their relegation into League One last season, the impressive transfer business conducted in the early weeks of the summer will at least encourage some degree of cautious optimism.
Cardiff City legend Peter Whittingham already looks like one of the Football League’s most impressive transfer coups after arriving at Ewood Park on a free. And Rotherham United midfielder Richie Smallwood has joined the 32-year-old to shore up the engine room.
Meanwhile, nabbing Gillingham star Bradley Dack for just £750,000, as reported by the BBC, could be great value. The 23-year-old won League One’s Player of the Year award after smashing 13 goals in 2015/16.

And it appears that Blackburn are set to follow up three stand-out deals with another couple of additions. According to the Lancashire Telegraph, out-of-contract Bradford City full-back Tony McMahon is on their radar.
The 31-year-old worked with Mowbray during his spell at Middlesbrough and any chance of a move to Bolton Wanderers look to have been ended by Mark Little’s arrival at the Macron Stadium.
Therefore, Lancashire neighbours Blackburn could take full advantage.
And the deals don’t end there. Because West London Sport claim that QPR winger Ben Gladwin is on the verge of completing a move after successful talks.
The 25-year-old stood out in the third tier with Swindon Town between 2013 and 2015 but has struggled to make the grade at Loftus Road. He made just three Championship starts last season before returning to Swindon in the second half of the campaign.

He was unable to prevent the club from dropping into League Two however.
Yet, he looks set to be given another chance to revive his career at Ewood Park as Mowbray aims to add proven League One experience to his squad.
