Blackburn chairman: Difficult to buy English

Blackburn Rovers chairman John Williams says Premiership clubs have no option but to shop abroad for new talent.

He said: "There is a shortage of English talent and you have to pay premium prices for those out there.

"I'm afraid that we have to shop where the market is right, where the players are right and where the price is right.

"We want to support the England national team but the price of English players can be very off-putting."
