Transfer Rumour: Hanley Opts Against Loan Deal To Stay And Fight For His Place

Blackburn Rovers' attempts to take Grant Hanley on loan from Norwich City have reportedly hit the buffers.

Rovers were keen to bring the 27-year-old back to Ewood Park with a loan deal being mooted, however the Lancashire side have reportedly turned their attentions to another former player in Scott Dann at Crystal Palace.

It is understood that following talks at the end of last season with the Norwich hierarchy that Hanley said he wanted to stay and fight for his place with City next season despite suffering a lack of playing time during the club's promotion charge.

The Scotland international, who signed a new contract at Carrow Road in November until 2023, had to play second fiddle to Christoph Zimmermann and Ben Godfrey in the second half of the season.

However, Hanley played a captain's role off the pitch in supporting the young pair and head coach Daniel Farke is happy with his current centre back options with Timm Klose having recently signed a new three-year deal.
