Tony Mowbray looks set to remain as Blackburn manager following “positive” talks with owners Venky’s.

Earlier this month Rovers were relegated to the third tier of English football for the first time in 22 years and Mowbray, who has a contract until next summer, declared he would need face-to-face discussions with the east Lancashire club’s hierarchy in India about the future.

And Mowbray has returned with the answers he required, including the assurances he does not need to cash in on any of his current squad and that funds will be provided for Blackburn’s promotion push.

“I’ve had really positive meetings with the owners,” he said on BBC Radio Lancashire.

“I’ve had three meetings with them over the last three days and got some reassurances. I find them to be most supportive.

“I know there’s issues but from my perspective they’ve been very supportive and I think they’re going to show some financial support for us to try and ensure we have a really strong season next year and bounce back as soon as we can.

“There’s no pressure to sell any players.┬áThe contracted players is a really important message – that we do need to try and remain strong.

“If the right offer comes along I have to consider whether I think the deal’s right for the club. The majority of the contracted players I would like to keep. They’ve shown me in the last 15 games we’ve got players capable of getting results for us.”
