Premier League football and price tag reason why Blackburn Rovers did not land Michael Keane

THE lure of Premier League football and the price tag put on his head by Manchester United are the reasons why Michael Keane ended up at Blackburn Rovers’ rivals Burnley.

That was the verdict of Rovers boss Gary Bowyer yesterday after being asked for his thoughts on Keane’s 11th-hour deadline-day loan switch to top-flight new boys Burnley.

Bowyer wanted to re-sign the England U21s international defender after a highly successful loan spell at Ewood Park last season in which he scored three goals in 13 Championship appearances.

But United made it clear they would prefer to send Keane back out on loan to one of their Premier League rivals – providing none of his suitors were willing to pay a fee, believed to be in the region of £2m-£3m, for the 21-year-old.

Bowyer said: “I’m delighted Michael is playing in the Premier League because in my opinion that’s where he belongs – he’s a Premier League player.

“We were interested in the summer but we fully understood the situation with Manchester United and they see it that the next part of his development is to go out to a Premier League club.

“And I’m fully aware for his development that the next stage has to be for him to play in it – and play in it regularly.

“The transfer fee that was mentioned to us, we couldn’t even begin to think about that.”

Asked whether there was a loan option available to Rovers Bowyer said: “He’s gone on loan to the Premier League so obviously that’s something that he and Manchester United have chosen for his development and the next stage of it.”

Devastated. If only we were in the Premier League once again so we could attract the likes of Keane, Steven Reid, Marvin Sordell and set a transfer record signing George Boyd.

Must be good.

totally understandable - playing against better players should make him a better player (as long as the ability is there)

and he will get lots of practice at dingles too

bowyer pretty clear - united want him to play in prem league - ultimately that will determine whether he is good enough for the first team at OT. it will also increase his sell on price if they want to get shut if he has 20-25 prem games under his belt versus 25-30 championship games.

yeah - would have been great......but so would michelle keegan coming round my house tonight - but ain't gonna happen (i'm out anyway)

We need a good CB now, not in 3 or 4 years time when Keane has learned his trade. He has the potential to improve but so do most other youngsters. Hopefully Duffy is more up to the task.

As for Keane going to Bonleh, his confidence could be ruined. It will make him or break him, I reckon.

Burnley fans can laugh at the fact they got Michael Keane instead of us, and that we couldn't afford to pay his transfer fee. But, at the end of the day, you couldn't buy him because you instead spent the money on an ageing Hull reject, and he only joined Burnley because he was so desperate to play first team football but no other Premier League club came in for him, which is why it happened so late on.

I don't understand the point you are trying to make.

Rovers couldn't pay £3 million out because of the FFP rules you Burnley fans seem to fantasise over which prevent Football League sides from spending such amounts.
If they were that hard up surely a £10 million+ bid from Hull City for Jordan Rhodes would have been impossible to turn down?

Dipping in the bin for cast offs - how would you describe Steven Reid and Matty Taylor - cast offs indeed.

It also seems Burnley can't/won't pay £3 million, hence why they failed to sign any of Craig Dawson, Richard Keogh, Henry Lansbury or Craig Bryson this summer, all well publicised transfer targets, and ultimately ended up taking a six month loan instead.

You're mistaken, yet again.
You're cheapskate board let him go. Not quite sure what you don't understand about this article..
He needs to prove himself first before a decision is made to bring him to the turf for good, so loan option is a great idea, just because he's a certain starter for a mediocre championship club, doesn't guarantee him a starting place in a premiership team... This is how you run a profitable club.
You can't even afford £2M for a player your manager clearly wanted to stay... - let's just all reflect on this for a moment.

No. Jordan Rhodes for £10 million and Rovers would not have seen anywhere near that amount due to the percentage of any sell on fee to Huddersfield. It may also be the case that Blackburn have not paid in full for him yet. But I would think the real reason is that Venky’s had a last minute think (after inviting Hull to offer for him) and decided that keeping him would be Rovers best shot at promotion this season. That way they could perhaps begin to re-coup some of their losses or sell and cut their losses.

I'm a Rovers fan but you are so 2 faced its unbelievable - when Keane was with us you were spouting (correctly) how good he was - when he was back at Utd you were saying we had to get him back (correctly) now he's gone to Burnley, suddenly he's a load of cr@p???? - grow up.

Spouting rubbish like that just makes you lose credibility - Keane is a good player - give him the respect he deserves AND EARNED during his spell with us.
he will only become a better player in the Premier League with Burnley

You're mistaken, yet again.
You're cheapskate board let him go. Not quite sure what you don't understand about this article..
He needs to prove himself first before a decision is made to bring him to the turf for good, so loan option is a great idea, just because he's a certain starter for a mediocre championship club, doesn't guarantee him a starting place in a premiership team... This is how you run a profitable club.
You can't even afford £2M for a player your manager clearly wanted to stay... - let's just all reflect on this for a moment.
"Premiership team" Just a minute. You went up with your Championship team, proceeded to buy / loan more Championship players but you're suddenly a Premiership team in your eyes ?...Get it ?

"Poor" but unfortunately true.

I think it's down to two issues:

1. You don't feel you're going to stay in the Premier League, so by loaning the only Premier League player you've got can easily be offloaded.

2. You don't have faith in your own ability to deveol some clear potential and generate a profit. Unless you have Howe to help of course.

Stinks of a lack of ambition to me.

OH HOW THE "MIGHTY" HAVE FALLEN GONE FROM RECORD SIGNINGS TO DIPPING INTO THE BIN FOR CAST OFF'S

36 MILLION IN THE RED

BURNLEY BEING CAREFUL AND NOT BLOWING ALL OUR MONEY IN ONE GO, A PROPER RUN CLUB TAKE NOTE CHICKEN BOYS LOL LOL LOL
I don't understand the point you are trying to make.

Rovers couldn't pay £3 million out because of the FFP rules you Burnley fans seem to fantasise over which prevent Football League sides from spending such amounts.
If they were that hard up surely a £10 million+ bid from Hull City for Jordan Rhodes would have been impossible to turn down?

Dipping in the bin for cast offs - how would you describe Steven Reid and Matty Taylor - cast offs indeed.

It also seems Burnley can't/won't pay £3 million, hence why they failed to sign any of Craig Dawson, Richard Keogh, Henry Lansbury or Craig Bryson this summer, all well publicised transfer targets, and ultimately ended up taking a six month loan instead.
No. Jordan Rhodes for £10 million and Rovers would not have seen anywhere near that amount due to the percentage of any sell on fee to Huddersfield. It may also be the case that Blackburn have not paid in full for him yet. But I would think the real reason is that Venky’s had a last minute think (after inviting Hull to offer for him) and decided that keeping him would be Rovers best shot at promotion this season. That way they could perhaps begin to re-coup some of their losses or sell and cut their losses.
Wrong, the agreement for any sell on for Rhodes is between 10 and 20% of ANY PROFIT MADE.

Hull were allegedly offering £12 million (that would probably buy the entire Burnley team plus the man and dog that watch you every week, but I digress).

Rovers paid £8 million for Rhodes, so accepting £12 million would have been a profit of £4 million, so the money we would have to pay out to Huddersfield would be a maximum of £800k.

Regarding Kean, what on earth is all the fuss about?

He was only at Ewood on loan, he is a Man U player, he either plays for Man U or they continue to farm him out to get experience, just as we are doing with Jack O'Connell.

Would have been nice to have him back but we have signed a decent young centre half on a full 3 year contract.

Personally I don't care who he plays for, he did a great job for us last season and if he gets three goals for Burnley in the PL this season he will probably score more than the rest of the team put together.

I,ll tell you what turdie your board is the laughing stock you had the chance to buy for 2-3 million and your board took a loan deal this player is class worth 3 times that. Venkys would have snapped united hand off if FFP was not stopping them. Its a no brainer you watch when your board wake up after a few games the price be out of reach come Christmas. In fact it would not surprise me if he was in united starting 11 in Jan.

Not too worried about Keane, Whilst he did a good job for us at Championship level. He certainly didn't stand out as a world beater and not a patch on Jones. He's also not proven at Premiership level yet with a price tag of £2-3 million which is too much anyway at this stage. He's only young and he could finish up doing a Todd Cane and not being able to fulfil his potential. I can only wish him well though and hope he does ok at Burnley.

Burnlah actually offered the £2.5m asked for but the lad insisted on a loan deal first to assess whether they had any chance of staying in the Premiership. Who knows? He could be at Ewood in January.

I don't understand the point you are trying to make.

Rovers couldn't pay £3 million out because of the FFP rules you Burnley fans seem to fantasise over which prevent Football League sides from spending such amounts.
If they were that hard up surely a £10 million+ bid from Hull City for Jordan Rhodes would have been impossible to turn down?

Dipping in the bin for cast offs - how would you describe Steven Reid and Matty Taylor - cast offs indeed.

It also seems Burnley can't/won't pay £3 million, hence why they failed to sign any of Craig Dawson, Richard Keogh, Henry Lansbury or Craig Bryson this summer, all well publicised transfer targets, and ultimately ended up taking a six month loan instead.
No. Jordan Rhodes for £10 million and Rovers would not have seen anywhere near that amount due to the percentage of any sell on fee to Huddersfield. It may also be the case that Blackburn have not paid in full for him yet. But I would think the real reason is that Venky’s had a last minute think (after inviting Hull to offer for him) and decided that keeping him would be Rovers best shot at promotion this season. That way they could perhaps begin to re-coup some of their losses or sell and cut their losses.

Wrong again.

We still owe Huddersfield Town two lots of £2m of the staged payments agreed in August 2012. We would therefore have had to pay Town a whopping £4.8m. Thats the reason why Venkys saw little reason to sell. As far as FFP goes its pi55ing in the wind.

Unfortunately now we're likely to receive less for Rhodes in Jan when our transfer embargo for non compliances forces us to recoup on our losses for last year which could be upwards of £45m! The trouble is from December clubs will be alerted that we need to sell so I would expect offers of around £8m to be more realistic. To turn down Hulls offer of £12m would therefore appear to be a massive balls up by Venkys.

What a shambles.

It also seems Burnley can't/won't pay £3 million, hence why they failed to sign any of Craig Dawson, Richard Keogh, Henry Lansbury or Craig Bryson this summer, all well publicised transfer targets, and ultimately ended up taking a six month loan instead.
No. Jordan Rhodes for £10 million and Rovers would not have seen anywhere near that amount due to the percentage of any sell on fee to Huddersfield. It may also be the case that Blackburn have not paid in full for him yet. But I would think the real reason is that Venky’s had a last minute think (after inviting Hull to offer for him) and decided that keeping him would be Rovers best shot at promotion this season. That way they could perhaps begin to re-coup some of their losses or sell and cut their losses.
Wrong, the agreement for any sell on for Rhodes is between 10 and 20% of ANY PROFIT MADE.

Hull were allegedly offering £12 million (that would probably buy the entire Burnley team plus the man and dog that watch you every week, but I digress).

Rovers paid £8 million for Rhodes, so accepting £12 million would have been a profit of £4 million, so the money we would have to pay out to Huddersfield would be a maximum of £800k.

Regarding Kean, what on earth is all the fuss about?

He was only at Ewood on loan, he is a Man U player, he either plays for Man U or they continue to farm him out to get experience, just as we are doing with Jack O'Connell.

Would have been nice to have him back but we have signed a decent young centre half on a full 3 year contract.

Personally I don't care who he plays for, he did a great job for us last season and if he gets three goals for Burnley in the PL this season he will probably score more than the rest of the team put together.
Wrong again.

We still owe Huddersfield Town two lots of £2m of the staged payments agreed in August 2012. We would therefore have had to pay Town a whopping £4.8m. Thats the reason why Venkys saw little reason to sell. As far as FFP goes its pi55ing in the wind.

Unfortunately now we're likely to receive less for Rhodes in Jan when our transfer embargo for non compliances forces us to recoup on our losses for last year which could be upwards of £45m! The trouble is from December clubs will be alerted that we need to sell so I would expect offers of around £8m to be more realistic. To turn down Hulls offer of £12m would therefore appear to be a massive balls up by Venkys.

What a shambles.

You're mistaken, yet again.
You're cheapskate board let him go. Not quite sure what you don't understand about this article..
He needs to prove himself first before a decision is made to bring him to the turf for good, so loan option is a great idea, just because he's a certain starter for a mediocre championship club, doesn't guarantee him a starting place in a premiership team... This is how you run a profitable club.
You can't even afford £2M for a player your manager clearly wanted to stay... - let's just all reflect on this for a moment.
"Premiership team" Just a minute. You went up with your Championship team, proceeded to buy / loan more Championship players but you're suddenly a Premiership team in your eyes ?...Get it ?
Plus they still have wooden seats in one stand ... that must be a first .. sorry a second for the premiership last being .....wait.. dingles lol

Burnley FC ..... down before the Christmas decorations :-)

I think it's down to two issues:

1. You don't feel you're going to stay in the Premier League, so by loaning the only Premier League player you've got can easily be offloaded.

2. You don't have faith in your own ability to deveol some clear potential and generate a profit. Unless you have Howe to help of course.

Stinks of a lack of ambition to me.
hmmmm - the last 3 signings all came from Premier League clubs - that makes them Premier League players any fool can understand that.
Boyd, Chalobah and Keane are Premier League players because they come from Premier League clubs?

Simply naïve beyond belief............

Come to think of it, I don't remember one genuine enquiry for any Bumleh players last transfer window which was supposed to be after the best performance from the best Dingle team in living memory. Only players running away from the club back to Howe in Bournemouth or simply because they couldn't be bothered to come back. What a joke.

He needs to prove himself first before a decision is made to bring him to the turf for good, so loan option is a great idea, just because he's a certain starter for a mediocre championship club, doesn't guarantee him a starting place in a premiership team... This is how you run a profitable club.
You can't even afford £2M for a player your manager clearly wanted to stay... - let's just all reflect on this for a moment.
"Premiership team" Just a minute. You went up with your Championship team, proceeded to buy / loan more Championship players but you're suddenly a Premiership team in your eyes ?...Get it ?
You are only as good as the league you are in now.
Yes, but you're not as good as the league you are in, that's my whole poiht and your position confirms that.
I suppose the same applies to the other two teams in the bottom three after just three games? Stupidity beyond belief and all because seeing us in the Premier League hurts. Last time you were in the PL YOU were bottom three after 38 games. That is why YOU are no longer a Premier League club. No prizes are handed out after three games, if they were Swansea would be playing Champions League football next season. Get a grip.

I would say there IS a trophy for for being careful. It's called ensuring the long term future of the club and avoiding the Financial Fair Play issues.

You really are a bitter childish bunch. Being outdone by little Burnley after years of Fantasy Football paid for by Uncle Jack. He's gone from being a tremendous prospect to rubbish because he signed for us. Schoolyard mentality at its most blatant. Still, your envious digs are good for a chuckle.
It was exactly the same with David Jones. He was brilliant when he played for them, they wanted him back, but he chose us, now he's crap according to them lot. UNBELIEVABLE !!!!!!!

No it's not great in the lower leagues and hopefully a few years tripping round footballs backwaters will bring those of you still drunk on Jack's cash back down to earth and you realise that you are not even the club you were before he had his input. There is much less between our two clubs now than there has been for nearly 40 years. You need to learn to lose your superiority complex as I'm sure there's some sane football fans in there somewhere.
