BLACKBURN Rovers have got to be looking for a bid in the £12m to £15m bracket before they considering letting Jordan Rhodes go to Hull City.
Ross McCormack went from Leeds to Fulham in the summer for £11m and for me Jordan is a better goalscorer, and younger too.
There is no way Blackburn should consider accepting anything less than that.
If a bid is made and Blackburn say yes, then it will be up to Jordan.
It’s clear he loves it at the club – he only just signed a new contract in the summer – and he is going to play every week here.
So he has to ask himself whether he’s going to get the same amount of football at Hull or another Premier League club.
Clubs in the top flight nowadays tend to have three or four strikers and you have to accept you are going to be rotated.
But for me there is nothing like playing every week and that is something Jordan should seriously consider if he does get the chance to go.
The big question Gary Bowyer has to ask if Jordan does leave, is how much am I going to spend and will I have enough time to spend given the transfer window closes in 10 days?
And another problem for Gary would be the fact that Jordan would be very difficult to replace as he’s so good at his job – no matter what he got to spend on a replacement.
We’ll just have to wait and see.
But for now the concentration has to be on getting back to winning ways at home to Bournemouth tomorrow.
I’m not surprised Norwich were so impressive in their win over Blackburn in the week.
They are one of the teams I’ve tipped to go up because they really know what they’re doing at that club whereas at Fulham and Cardiff – the other clubs who have come down – I’m not so sure.
Gary will have to pick his players up and I’m sure he will.
But the one thing that worries me is the amount of late goals his side are conceding.
We saw it at the back end of last season, against the likes of Watford and Sheffield Wednesday, and it happened again at Carrow Road on Tuesday night.
It was a real sickener and it’s something Gary has got to work on with his players.
