Blackburn Rovers will look to reject bids from the likes of West Brom and Leicester for talisman Bradley Dack if they find themselves in promotion contention when the January window opens, according to a report from The Sun on Sunday (16/09; page 63).

Dack has been a fantastic signing for Rovers, inspiring their League One promotion win last season, and making a brilliant start to life in the second tier, scoring three goals in four appearances.


His impressive form attracted the Baggies' attention in the summer, with The Sun on Sunday reporting that Darren Moore's men made a £15 million bid for the attacking midfielder, and were shocked when the offer was rejected. But it appears that they could be considering a fresh move.

The Sun on Sunday (16/09; page 63) suggests that West Brom and Leicester could look again during the winter, but Blackburn will look to resist all offers for the 24-year-old - provided that they are in contention to make the play-offs by the time the window opens.

Blackburn have made a promising start to life in the second tier. Their 1-1 draw with Aston Villa on Saturday leaves Tony Mowbray's men 13th in the Championship, just two points off the top six. 

Rovers meet West Brom on New Year's Day, so it will be interesting to see whether Dack has an impact on the game and whether that could leave the Baggies even more determined to prise the playmaker away from Ewood Park.
