Blackburn manager Steve Kean is thought to be looking at the possibility of bringing QPR striker Jamie Mackie to Ewood Park in the summer transfer window. The QPR forward has been linked with a move away from the club after failing to impress manager Mark Hughes, who is looking to bring in several high profile players to the club in the summer.
Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean has said that he is extremely confident that Blackburn can survive in the Premier league this season.
The statement comes after the 2-0 win against Wolverhampton Wanderers, which helped Blackburn get out of the relegation zone at this crucial stage of the season.
Bolton Wanderers leapfrogged Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League table with a vital 2-1 victory at Ewood Park, a defeat which could spell the end for Blackburn boss Steve Kean.
Blackburn fans hurled abuse at Kean from the start and many believe his position is becoming untenable.
Former Ewood Park favourite Kevin Gallacher said: "To me, it's now becoming untenable. At this moment in time the club is going into the abyss. There's a fear factor about what's going to happen to the club. I'm very worried about it."
Blackburn's star striker has asked fans to get behind the team over the next few weeks, instead of spending their time protesting.
Rovers have got off to a slow start this season, which has heaped the pressure on to manager Steve Kean. He has repeatedly promised that big names will arrive, but since the club sold Phil Jones to Manchester United for just over £17m, there have been no such signings.
Yakubu arrived on a free transfer, and has helped to score some goals (and salvage some points) for the Blackburn team.
Steve Kean has said that that he wants Christopher Samba to stay at the club who instead of leaving. Kean notched his first victory as Rovers boss at West Brom and was also buoyed by Samba's apparent U-turn.
"I am delighted to say he [Samba] does not want to hand in that transfer request," Keane said after the 3-1 win.
"Christopher might have been misquoted. He assured me he never said he wanted to leave."
Kean had previously said Samba wanted to leave Blackburn, also stripping the player of the captaincy.
