Blackburn Rovers boss Paul Ince admits they cannot compete with many Premiership rivals in the transfer market.
Ince told the Lancashire Telegraph: "Villa spend £60m, Spurs £60-70m, but we can't do that. It is hard but you have to try and find bargain players. We spent 4.2m Euros on Grella as a midfield player.
"Everton spend £15m on one. It shows the vast difference between the money we have got.
"The centre halfs looked absolutely solid, and we have a decent squad here but we have to keep improving it.
"If we keep performing like we have been it is great because it gives me a headache and that is what you want."
