Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean remains confident of buying in January.

With 86.6% of Blackburn's income going out in wages, there would appear to be pressure to cut costs rather than increase them.

However, there has been an assurance money will be found to assist with a relegation fight and Kean is optimistic Venky's will deliver.

"I am very optimistic we will get funds," said the Scot, who continues to be linked with a move for Fulham forward Andy Johnson.

"The financial side of the club is dealt with by the financial directors and the people that crunch the numbers.

"Hopefully they can come back in the next few days and say that we can be active at a good level.

"Obviously there is money that has come into the club, none more so than Phil Jones going to Manchester United.

"We want to keep the squad together, build on it and make sure we can add faces and not take them away."
