Reported Tottenham target Bradley Dack won’t be sold by Blackburn in the January transfer window, according to Rovers manager Tony Mowbray.

Dack has scored 10 goals so far this season after a stellar 2017/18 campaign in which his performances helped Blackburn achieve promotion from League One to the Championship.

Last month, reports claimed Spurs are keeping tabs on the 24-year-old, who has never represented England at any level after blooming relatively late.

Blackburn signed Dack from Gillingham for under £1 million in 2017, but Mowbray says even an offer of £25 million wouldn’t tempt Rovers into selling the midfielder in January.

“He won’t go anywhere, even if we get big bids, in this next window,” Mowbray said at a fans’ forum, according to TEAMtalk.

“We bought him for £750k, if we sell him for £25million I’d hope I get a good chunk of that to spend on two or three players.

“He wants to play in the Premier League and I’m sure he can. This window [in January] will come up quickly on us. My hope is that Bradley knocks on my door and says that he doesn’t want to go.”

Tottenham pursued another attacking midfielder from the Championship over the summer in the form of Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.

A deal failed to materialise and there has been very little speculation about the Londoners reviving their interest in the winter transfer window.

It doesn’t sound like Spurs will have any luck with Dack, either, but that could be offset by Christian Eriksen potentially signing a new contract.
