The manager of Blackburn Rovers, Gary Bowyer, has made it clear that if somebody comes to him with a high bid for the young English striker Jordan Rhodes, he might let him go.
Rhodes who is in his early twenties at the moment is being considered as an exceptional young talent. There have been speculations that he would be bought by a Premier League side pretty soon and the statement made by Bowyer suggests that these speculations might turn out to be true.
Rhodes had come through the ranks at Barnsley and then, he made a move at Ipswich Town. But, the club where he developed the most as an attacking player was Huddersfield Town. He made close to 150 appearances there and found the net regularly.
Rhodes’ Blackburn career started in August 2012. The Riversiders bought him after paying 8 million Pounds as transfer fee. He started delivering right from the word go at Ewood Park. In his debut season, he played 48 matches and struck 27 times.
The 23 years old striker has continued on his merry way this season too and has already scored quite a few goals. According to the reports, he is wanted by some top clubs.
When asked about Rhodes being linked with other clubs, Bowyer said, “Look, we are not in a mood to put him on sale. His value for us is significant, but, if we are offered an unbelievable amount to let him go, we would have to think about it quite seriously.”
Blackburn has suffered huge defeats in the last couple of games. First, they got thumped by Manchester City in the 3rd round of the FA Cup on Wednesday and then, Nottingham Forest handed them a 1-4 humiliation in a Championship game during the weekend.
