Blackburn manager Steve Kean has revealed that Canadian forward Junior Hoilett is close to committing his long-term future to the club.

The 21-year-old has been with the Premier League club since he was 13 and his current contract is set to expire at the end of the season.

Kean told BBC Radio Lancashire: "We've virtually agreed a very long-term deal.

"I imagine I'll be on a plane to Toronto over the weekend and we'll get that done and dusted."
