JORDAN Rhodes is expected to be named in the official Blackburn Rovers squad list for today’s Championship clash at home to Bournemouth (3pm) despite the fact that Hull City remain locked in talks with the Ewood Park outfit for his signature.

But it is unclear whether the £12m-rated Rovers striker will play any part in what would be his 100th appearance for the club following his club record £8m move from Huddersfield Town in August 2012.

What is clear is that Hull still want to make Rhodes their club record signing after having an initial £8m bid rejected on Thursday.

As the Lancashire Telegraph was going to press Rovers had not accepted an offer from the Premier League side – with owners Venky’s having the ultimate say.

But board-level negotiations were ongoing between the Tigers – whose current club record signing is £8m midfielder Jake Livermore – and their Ewood counterparts.

Managing director Derek Shaw has been leading the negotiations for Rovers.

However the final decision on whether Rhodes, who has scored 53 goals for the club, stays or goes will be made by Venky’s.

Gary Bowyer admitted on Thursday that the situation is ‘out of his hands’.

But the Rovers boss wants a resolution as soon as possible as he seeks to strengthen his squad before the transfer window slams shut on Monday week.

Hull are willing to throw in one of their players to help push through a deal to take Rhodes to the KC Stadium.

One of those players is definitely defender Alex Bruce – who is the son of Tigers boss Steve Bruce.

The 29-year-old, who can play at centre back, right back and in front of the defence, was on the books of Rovers as youngster.

But he left the club in January 2005 without making a first-team appearance.

Rovers do not want to sell Rhodes, who has scored 53 goals in 99 games for the club, and they hoped to fend off potential suitors by handing the 24-year-old a lucrative new and improved five-year contract last month.

But that has not stopped Hull, whose assistant manager and former Rovers midfielder Steve Agnew is Rhodes’ uncle, from becoming the first club to table a formal bid for the Scotland international.

Jason Lowe has made it clear that the players do not want Rhodes to leave.

The Rovers right back said: “Obviously there’s always going to be interest in Jordan because of the amount of goals he’s scored for us over the last couple of seasons.

“His level of performances have been second to none, he’s a great lad and hopefully we can do everything we can to keep hold of him as he’s a vital member for us.

“We’ll see what happens but hopefully we’ll keep hold of him.”

Tigers manager Steve Bruce said this morning: "It's something which we're trying to progress if that's possible.

"There has been a bid lodged and while I believe the first one was refused, I believe the two clubs are still talking."

there are so many conflicting rumors, if you do not intend selling Jordan just come out and tell the tigers, tell them no matter what money they put on the table...HE'S GOING NOWHERE!....simples.


why on earth would we be interested in Alex Bruce? other teams know where we are a bit thin and think they can fob us off with some defender that didn't make the grade on his spell at Rovers? Steve off load your rubbish elsewhere pal.....NOT INTERESTED MATE

He has a contract so why should he not play today? It really winds me up when Managers say a footballer is "not in the right state of mind" to play. In every other walk of life you are expected to turn up and do your job to the best of your ability. It is an insult to fans in particular to abstain from playing especially when a player is on as much a week as some supporters earn in a year. I hope JR doesn't fudge it today. As of now he remains a Rovers player and should be included until circumstances change. And just before I sign off we don't want any make weights please. Lets see the colour of your cash Hull; if not clear off!

I'm sorry but Alex Bruce is no better than Jack O'Connell so why on earth would the club significantly weaken one area of the team and not strengthen another? Also, it doesn't take a genius to know that we can't replace Jordan Rhodes, especially with no money to spend. If we do get £12M for him, and it's a big 'if', £6.4M of that will go to Huddersfield and the remaining £5.6M will probably be used to put a little dent in our debts (why else would we sell him). It would make more sense to hold out for a couple of million more with the express purpose of using those additional funds to let Bowyer strengthen with players of his choosing, not who Steve Bruce dictates.

Cranky, they aren't going to go away, it isn't the first time they have "made enquiries", the last two windows for instance.

Rovers are obviously playing hardball here, if a bid has come in that triggers a clause, and there will be one, they, the player and his advisors have to consider it.

Like your good self I am not happy about this but it's how football works.

Rovers need the money, Venky's don't, but until Venky's get Rovers back on a financial even keel they can't invest in the club to the level we expect them to, and from all indications they believe that will take this season and next.

Rovers and Venky's will know the current financial situation at the club better than anyone, I would prefer hearts to rule minds in this one, but a more pragmatic view is the club has to survive FFP.

I am really hoping to see him on the pitch giving it 100% as usual for us today, even if it's his last game for us.

Welsh Rover; 20% of any profit made will go to Huddersfield, so on the figures being quoted that's going to be around £700k, and if Rovers are cute in the deal this will probably be paid by Hull as an add on.

PS for FFP it's "losses" not "debts" that are taken into account.

All this speculation may damage the team please hurry up and resolve one way or another.im resigned to the fact JR is a gonna and I haven't really seen Rhodes perform great since his ridiculous wage increase, saying that the service hasn't been great. He kept us in the championship and possibly kept this club from slipping into administration a without his goals we were div 1. For sure. So for that I'll always think highly of him.

If I hHull are successful with their bid then I only hope it may be the impetus Gary needs to actually set up the team in a more attacking manner as there will be no more Rhodes to. Rely on. And with ffp looming it was kinda inevitable, those wages are unsustainable.

Why do people keep saying we wouldn't miss Rhodes if he went because his current form is poor? If you were real Rovers fans you'd know that for the two seasons he's been here he hasn't scored in the first few games and gone on to score 25 plus in each season. Jordan is a goal scorer and there are no players out there who we could replace him with.

All this talk about building up a team to get back to the premiership, and then you don't even have the wit or the guts to come out and say that the only player who guarantees us 20/25 + goals a season is not for sale, I don't care for FFP or whatever they call it, get rid off some more deadwood instead, we still have plenty of that. This club has turned into such a useless bunch of people, it's almost scary. Go ahead, do another Phil Jones blunder. AND ALEX BRUCE OF ALL PEOPLE! WE don't want him, below average player. Show that you care about this club, if you sell JR we know that you don't! Time to pull out the banners again? Probably.[/p][/quote]Yeah thats right lets start all that again and really put the club out of business You are another of the Trolls sign ons. Or a complete nkob Hard to tell the difference really Still a Wild Rover

Steve Bruce that is, was quoted saying this this morning.
From the official website..... still hope

We have recently received two official bids for the services of Jordan Rhodes from Hull City FC, both have been respectfully and categorically rejected.



The owners of Blackburn Rovers wish to reassure fans that their intention is not to sell Jordan Rhodes as they, along with the manager and board of directors, feel that he is integral to our bid to gain promotion back to the Premier League.




Despite the necessity to comply with and address the pending restrictions of FFP regulations, the owners feel it would be a detrimental step to lose our top goalscorer

and such an icon of this football club.




We made our intentions clear this summer when we rewarded Jordan with a new and improved contract and we stand by that.




We want to give Gary Bowyer and the team the best possible opportunity to get back to the top flight and Jordan has been and remains a significant part of that aim.




It is also important to acknowledge that Jordan has acted, unsurprisingly, in a totally professional manner during this period of speculation.
