“We're not in a great position with him because he only signed a two-year contract”
Steve Kean on the future of Junior Hoilett
The Blackburn boss confirmed that one player has asked to leave the club, adding: "I would rather keep that private, but there's only one.
"Every other player I've spoken to wants to stay and wants to be part of it."
It was feared that seasoned campaigners such as goalkeeper Paul Robinson and defender Gael Givet
would also depart
after the club were relegated from the Premier League in May.
Experienced midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen has already
declared his intention to remain
with Rovers, as they prepare for life in the second tier for the first time since 2001.
But striker Hoilett, who has reportedly been a target for several Premier League clubs, looks almost certain to leave Ewood Park after failing to sign a new deal.
"We're not in a great position with him because he only signed a two-year contract when, probably, that should have been more a number of years ago," added Kean. "We are where we are and I'm not sure how that one will pan out."
