Kear realistic over loan duo

The pair moved to Ewood Park on temporary deals in January and Kean

had hoped to negotiate prices with their parent clubs for summer

transfers. Blackburn want to re-sign Paraguay striker Santa Cruz,

29, from Manchester City two years after selling him to the

Eastlands outfit for £17.5million while American midfielder

Jones, also 29, is contracted to Schalke. Kean told the Lancashire

Telegraph: “We tried to fix a price for Roque and the same for

Jermaine because we thought they would do well but we couldn’t fix

a price. “We were confident they would do well but obviously if

they do really well now then the price becomes too much. “We tried

to get a price fixed but the parent club wouldn’t allow that and we

just have to get on with it.”
