Blackburn Rovers striker Rhodes ‘happy’ to stay

This Is Lancashire: Jordan Rhodes Jordan Rhodes

BLACKBURN Rovers top scorer Jordan Rhodes has reiterated he is happy to stay at Ewood Park.

Speculation has linked Rhodes with moves to clubs in the Premier League and in the Championship during this month’s transfer window – with QPR manager Harry Redknapp going on record to state his admiration for the ‘amazing’ striker.

But Rhodes insists he does not want to leave Rovers.

The 16-goal striker said: “The speculation is not something I can influence or determine.

“I love being at Blackburn Rovers and being a Blackburn Rovers player.

“It’s a club full of good people, with good players and a good team spirit and tremendous facilities.

“I like going in every day and until told otherwise I’m a Blackburn Rovers player.”

And Rhodes is determined to help the club back into the Premier League.

He added: “We’re not too far off, we’ve just been lacking that last win to put us on a three or four-match winning streak that would put us into the play-offs.”

Redknapp has admitted his interest in the Scotland striker but claimed that Rovers would not budge on price.

The QPR boss said: “He’s a good player but I don’t think they (Rovers) will lower the price.

“They want their money back – they want their £8m or £9m for him.

“He’s too expensive.

“Every week he scores.

“He’s amazing.”

If Rhodes goes, then Blackburn will Blackout and struggle to find net.

He is a magical player with Good Head and Foot and Habbit. God Bless.

We all move together to top fight that is what Jorden likes and FANS wanted too.

Rhodes is my favourite player and he knows that as I see him before and after each home game when I am there. A very charming person who takes time to meet the supporters.

It is easy for Rhodes to say he is happy staying at Rovers but what happens if an astronomical bid comes in where he has no say as the owners will find it impossible to resist and sell him? At the end of the day, the Venky's are the ones who own the players and make the final decisions.

Rhodes comes across as a sensible young man who has his head screwed on, I also suspect that he knows his limitations, the main one being a lack of pace, something that even defenders have to have at the highest level these days.

He is an old style striker in the mould of Greaves, Law or Lineker, get the ball to him in the box and he is deadly, outside the box it's another story.

He's going nowhere for the foreseeable future.
