BLACKBURN Rovers made three signings and let one player leave on a busy final day of the summer transfer window at Ewood Park.

After completing the permanent capture of Everton centre-back Shane Duffy on a three-year contract Rovers swooped for Fulham midfielder Ryan Tunnicliffe and Middlesbrough goalkeeper Jason Steele on season-long loans in the final 90 minutes of the window late last night.

MORE TOP STORIES:

But Jack O’Connell left the club after he re-signed for League One outfit Rochdale on loan until January 3.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer did attempt to make a fourth addition to his squad.

But Bowyer - who was linked with Port Vale striker Tom Pope - was unable to get his man.

Former England U21s international Steele, who was part of Great Britain’s squad at the 2012 London Olympic Games, will challenge Paul Robinson for the number one jersey at Rovers.

The 24-year-old was linked with big money moves to Liverpool and Arsenal earlier in his career.

But after undergoing surgery in November, the 6ft 2in Steele has made just start under new boss Aitor Karanka and has found himself third in the pecking order behind the under-fire Tomas Mejias and Dimi Konstantopoulos – a decision that has not gone down well with Boro supporters.

Tunnicliffe also found himself out of favour at Fulham after making a January move from then Premier League rivals Manchester United.

The 21-year-old started his first two games for the Cottagers.

But he was deemed surplus to requirement by Felix Magath after he took over from Rene Meulensteen and was sent out on loan to Wigan Athletic.

The former England U17s international, who worked with Meulensteen at United, had a more successful loan spell at Ipswich Town earlier in his career.

And it is believed Rovers beat the Tractor Boys to his signature.

Bowyer’s move for Duffy, 22, meant centre-back O’Connell, 20, was given the green light to rejoin Rochdale with who he helped win promotion from League Two last season.

Rochdale boss, and former Rovers defender, Keith Hill said: “Blackburn had one or two injuries, so it took a little bit longer than expected, but I’ve been patient with it.

“I was constantly looking at the press to see who Blackburn were being linked with and to see if it was a central defender. Obviously they got Shane Duffy, which allowed us to recruit Jack on loan.

“I know there were other clubs desperate to sign Jack but he wanted to come back to Rochdale if he wasn’t to be a first team regular for Blackburn.

“I think he found a footballing home here last season.

“Jack, for me, was worth the hard work and the patience because I like him so much as a player and as a person. I’m really pleased to have recruited him.” It is believed Rovers yesterday attempted to move on at least two more players.

Take off the Rovers Tinted glasses and you will see Keane is better at Burnley. We had him last year and he did decent at this level and now wants to test himself at the top, which is the best move for him and United.

There is being loyal to your team and there is applying logic and common sense to the situation.

I dont see how United or Keanes decision to move the Burnley move ahead is stupid.

Yes I would have had him back but its not a stupid move for him.

He will score a few headers from set pieces but he looks easy to turn to me and had an absolute shocker in the cup.

Duffy offers a more physical presence and we probably need that more at this level.

I've seen, on social media, United's acquisition of Di Maria and Falcao being described as giving someone with a heart condition new t!ts. It may look nice but it wasn't what was needed. Thankfully for us, Bowyer has identified our weaknesses and brought in the type of players to strengthen the team.

Now, I like Hanley, I think his passion is unmatched by anybody else in the squad, apart from Dunn perhaps. However, he makes far too many rash challenges which often result in the team conceding. I think he needs to be dropped for a few games, just so he can watch players like Kilgallon, Baptiste and Duffy and see how composed they are.

Aside from Varney, (the jury's still out on him), I think we've had quite a successful transfer window. Pope would've been a good addition but there's still a loan window coming up so who knows.

As for the ridiculous comments with regards to Keane, a move to a Premier League club was always going to be preferential for all parties concerned. Just for the record though, we didn't go back in for him as United were waiting to get another defender in but we couldn't take that risk. Keane being allowed to leave once Blind was signed confirms this. We've probably come out of it better off as we've got a permanent signing and a more experienced player.

Good work.

No we didn't.

As for Keane, yes we'd have liked him back but if he's willing to play for a horrific club like Bonleh to play against Prem opposition then fair do's. Maybe he's a sadomasochist and enjoys pain?

As far as Keane goes we would have loved to bring him back, he was awesome for us and made a massive difference to our defence. Unfortunately we cannot hope to compete with Premier League Burnley these days when it comes to signing players, why would anyone want to join a club under so much uncertainty as us with a transfer embargo due in only four months.

God help us when we're forced to sell Rhodes and Cairney in January. It's downhill all the way I'm afraid.

Shocking transfer window for us. Bowyer out!

I'ts a pity you couldn't have got Keane back, but then again, l suppose you cant blame the boy for going to a Premiership club.

oh do shut up you prat. have you seen any of them play?

have you ever had a positive thought in your whole life?

for me:
signing a centre half permanently - tick
signing an half-decent keepet (if boro fans are to be believed) - tick
signing a young midfielder - tick

for christ's sake give them a chance.

and as for the dingles that infect these pages - are you not more concerned/interested in your own acquisitions

honestly, FFP is clearly a problem, but it has been a growing one for some years and cannot be changed over night. all that the club is doing to address the situation is sensible.
and, on top of that, the legal aspects and sanctions may be pushed through the courts for a number of years yet.
there are too many uncertainties about FFP (for any of the many clubs with the same problems as us) to just sit back an make no moves in the transfer market.
this has been debated to death, and there is little point in pushing it around more without some of the uncertainties having been addressed.

The best bit of business during this transfer window by far was to keep Jordan Rhodes under a somewhat hostile approach from Bruce. Respect for Venkys for not letting him go. Respect for Venkys for providing funds for additional signing's in this difficult financial climate. Respect to Rhodes for not putting in a transfer request. Now it is down to GB to up his game and not waste another opportunity with the calibre of players he now has on board.

Thankfully for us, Bowyer has identified our weaknesses and brought in the type of players to strengthen the team.

Now, I like Hanley, I think his passion is unmatched by anybody else in the squad, apart from Dunn perhaps. However, he makes far too many rash challenges which often result in the team conceding. I think he needs to be dropped for a few games, just so he can watch players like Kilgallon, Baptiste and Duffy and see how composed they are.

Aside from Varney, (the jury's still out on him), I think we've had quite a successful transfer window. Pope would've been a good addition but there's still a loan window coming up so who knows.

As for the ridiculous comments with regards to Keane, a move to a Premier League club was always going to be preferential for all parties concerned. Just for the record though, we didn't go back in for him as United were waiting to get another defender in but we couldn't take that risk. Keane being allowed to leave once Blind was signed confirms this. We've probably come out of it better off as we've got a permanent signing and a more experienced player.

Good work.

Dewch Ar Chi Gleision!
The jury's out on Varney? I don't think so. He has been found guilty of being totally useless! I really don't get what Bowyer sees in him. Yes, he runs around a lot but can he score goals? I think the answer there is a categorical no!
Seeing as how he's not really been given a chance up front, I'll reserve my judgement until he has.

Totally agree, we kept all our best players and brought three new faces in.

As I said on another thread GB appears to look at what he has and every transfer window so far has brought in three or four new pieces to fit in the jigsaw.

We will soon find out if they fit, the omens from the last two windows are pretty good that they will.

I am not to concerned about O'Connell going out on loan again, Keith Hill is a pretty switched on guy and will give him a good grounding which won't do him any harm whatsoever, pretty certain he has a future at Ewood.

I also suspect that several current fringe players will be going out on loan once the window opens, the core of the squad GB wants is taking shape, it takes two or three years to do that sort of thing under normal circumstances.

Good post up to the arrogant, "As for the ridiculous comments with regards to Keane..." Why should it surprise you that most Rovers fans hate the idea of him going to B*rnley and why can't they discuss it on a thread about Rovers transfer dealings? Rovers have been linked with him, he was with us on loan last season and many hoped he would come and play for us again.

You're not from Lancashire, you're not even English, how could you possibly understand the rivalry with B*rnley. Why are you so surprised that one of the countries outstanding young defenders has gone to B*rnley. Same with the other smart arse owd Nick who started off his footballing life watching and supporting Manchester United for several years.

Stop making out that you're above it all. Oh wait, you can't because you're not a football fan, you're the new breed, like Nick, your a "football consumer" and think all this banter, rivalry and cheering lark is just a bit beneath you really.

Like i said, you and your boyfriend owd Nick and your ilk make out that you're the voices of reason but you hate any one that doesn't agree with you. Such is the Happy-Clapper way.

Now, I like Hanley, I think his passion is unmatched by anybody else in the squad, apart from Dunn perhaps. However, he makes far too many rash challenges which often result in the team conceding. I think he needs to be dropped for a few games, just so he can watch players like Kilgallon, Baptiste and Duffy and see how composed they are.

Aside from Varney, (the jury's still out on him), I think we've had quite a successful transfer window. Pope would've been a good addition but there's still a loan window coming up so who knows.

As for the ridiculous comments with regards to Keane, a move to a Premier League club was always going to be preferential for all parties concerned. Just for the record though, we didn't go back in for him as United were waiting to get another defender in but we couldn't take that risk. Keane being allowed to leave once Blind was signed confirms this. We've probably come out of it better off as we've got a permanent signing and a more experienced player.

Good work.

Good post up to the arrogant, "As for the ridiculous comments with regards to Keane..." Why should it surprise you that most Rovers fans hate the idea of him going to B*rnley and why can't they discuss it on a thread about Rovers transfer dealings? Rovers have been linked with him, he was with us on loan last season and many hoped he would come and play for us again.

You're not from Lancashire, you're not even English, how could you possibly understand the rivalry with B*rnley. Why are you so surprised that one of the countries outstanding young defenders has gone to B*rnley. Same with the other smart arse owd Nick who started off his footballing life watching and supporting Manchester United for several years.

Stop making out that you're above it all. Oh wait, you can't because you're not a football fan, you're the new breed, like Nick, your a "football consumer" and think all this banter, rivalry and cheering lark is just a bit beneath you really.

Like i said, you and your boyfriend owd Nick and your ilk make out that you're the voices of reason but you hate any one that doesn't agree with you. Such is the Happy-Clapper way.

Totally agree, we kept all our best players and brought three new faces in.

As I said on another thread GB appears to look at what he has and every transfer window so far has brought in three or four new pieces to fit in the jigsaw.

We will soon find out if they fit, the omens from the last two windows are pretty good that they will.

I am not to concerned about O'Connell going out on loan again, Keith Hill is a pretty switched on guy and will give him a good grounding which won't do him any harm whatsoever, pretty certain he has a future at Ewood.

I also suspect that several current fringe players will be going out on loan once the window opens, the core of the squad GB wants is taking shape, it takes two or three years to do that sort of thing under normal circumstances.
I think we will see the Dale results pick up significantly now and I agree there is no better place for an upcoming young Rover. The number of ex Daleys gracing the top two flights is out of all proportion to their size. I am also looking for Duffy to be the big effective stopper we need.
Quicker we get that Wolves shocker out of our system the better.

We need to climb out of this division this season or risk administration... how are we expected to do this if you continue to bring in Championship and League One rejects. Its not looking good for us, midtable will be the best we can hope for with this bunch of misfits and rejects.
