Crystal Palace boss rules out move for Blackburn Rovers striker Rhodes

This Is Lancashire: Jordan Rhodes Jordan Rhodes

NEW Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis will not be making a January transfer window bid for Blackburn Rovers top scorer Jordan Rhodes.

Pulis was linked with a move for the 11-goal striker shortly after taking over as Eagles boss last month.

But the former Stoke City manager says Palace cannot afford Rhodes.

Pulis said: “We'll get linked with every Tom, Dick and Harry from now until the end of the window.

“But the answer is no, we couldn’t afford Jordan Rhodes.”

Rhodes has scored 39 goals in 68 games for Rovers since making a club record £8m transfer from Huddersfield Town in August 2012.

Rovers boss Gary Bowyer has been told by owners Venky’s that he does not have to sell Rhodes, or any other of his key players, when the transfer window reopens next month.

Maybe Crystal Palace cant afford him, but West Ham can, Sunderland can, several mid-table premier league clubs can. You are clinging onto the misguided notion that Blackburn has something to offer him? He has no future at BRFC, sad but true.

Yes, a good idea for a cut price deal for Palace. Danny would be out like a shot if someone offered him more that 2 quid a week.

Ings want's to play in the Prem. He will with the mighty Clarets. He won't with the Balty Boys and he won't with the Norwood Junction mob.

Rhodes wants to play with anyone but you Korma Kids. I'd believe the Palace chat if I were you. Any port when you live amongst, work for and are supported by feces.
