Michael Keane is a young defender who was named as the Reserve Player of the Year of Manchester United in 2012 but even with his standout performances in the youth team, he has not managed on making a single appearance for the senior team and has been offload to a number of different clubs including: Leicester City, Derby County and Blackburn Rovers all on loan deals.
The boss of Blackburn Rovers, Gary Bowyer is hoping he can sign Michael Keane on a permanent deal but will have to wait on the decision of Louis van Gaal and see if the Dutch coach has any plans of utilizing Keane in the first team.
Bowyer told reporters: “I’ve said all along that Mr Van Gaal will have a look at him. If Michael’s situation was to change then hopefully we’d be in a position to put ourselves forward. But we’re talking ifs, buts and maybes at the moment as he’s a Manchester United player.”
Bowyer is trying to focus on the defensive division of Blackburn Rovers as the English tactician is happy with his offensive options of his team. Luke Varney is one of the latest reinforcements that will be joining the team of Bowyer during the next season and the manager of the club revealed his satisfaction about all the attacking players he has at his disposal.
Jordan Rhodes, Rudy Gestede, Luke Varney and Chris Brown are all of the players that will be competing for a spot in the starting lineup of Bowyer.
“The four of them are very competitive and it gives us different options. We’ve got a good combination and a good mix. I’m looking forward to working with them all. I wouldn’t want to be playing against Rudy, Brown or Varney in the air. Your other option as a centre-half is to mark Jordan and I wouldn’t fancy that either.” Bowyer said as he talked about his attacking options for the upcoming season.
