The Scot’s future at Elland Road has been under the radar since he fell out of favour at Leeds and several Championship clubs have been eyeing snatching the full-back on loan.


Douglas has emerged as Rovers’ preferred option at left-back, with the club having been in talks with Leeds over a loan deal for the 31-year-old.



The Blackburn boss revealed that his club are in overdrive to secure the signatures of at least two new players with Douglas expected to be one of the fresh faces.


“We’re always trying to do business but a phone call is a phone call, and then there’s another phone call later”, Mowbray told a press conference.



“I would hope that we could get a minimum of two, maybe three, in if we can.


“We’re working hard behind the scenes to bolster the squad.”



Mowbray stressed that Blackburn have been working hard to bring in a new left-back with Douglas a target and is hoping that his team can drag the deal over the line as soon as possible.


“We’re looking for players who can come and compete in that position [left-back] and Barry Douglas is one name among a few that we’ve been talking to and looking at.


“We’ll see which one falls into place for us.”


In addition to a left-back, a new shot-stopper is also on Mowbray’s radar with Middlesbrough’s Aynsley Pears touted as his prime target.
