Blackburn boss Steve Kean is facing a fight with Roma for United States midfielder Jermaine Jones.
Kean wants to bring back Jones from German side Schalke after a successful loan spell, but the Bundesliga outfit want £5.5million.
Rovers were hoping to reduce the asking price but now Jones’s agent is in talks with Roma who may be prepared to pay him better terms – and sort out a fee with Schalke.
