BLACKBURN Rovers owners Venky’s have rejected a club record bid from Hull City for Jordan Rhodes – insisting they have no intention of selling the star striker.

It is understood that Hull, whose current club record signing is £8m midfielder Jake Livermore, were willing to pay in excess of £10m for Rhodes.

The proposed deal included add ons as well as a player – believed to be Tigers boss Steve Bruce’s son, defender Alex Bruce.

But Venky’s have put a halt to the negotiations which have taken place since Hull had an initial £8m offer rejected on Thursday.

Rhodes, who has scored 53 goals in 99 games for Rovers following his club record £8m move from Huddersfield Town in August 2012 and penned a new and improved five-year contract last month, is expected to start in today’s Championship clash at home to Bournemouth (3pm).

It will be his 100th appearance for the club.

Rovers directors of communications Alan Myers said: “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.”

But a serious offer around £12M would clinch it, don't you think? Maybe there was a sell-on clause in his recent new contract or they could be waiting for the transfer request from JR ?? Either way, once a player's head's been turned...

...nice PR from the club for a change!

Jordan Rhodes is my favourite player since Tugay. Whenever we've received bids of this size for our previous prize assets the players themselves have jumped at the chance, handing in transfer requests etc. It's not uncommon it's just what happens to all small clubs. But not Rhodes, have you ever seen a player act so respectfully to a smaller club when a bigger one comes calling? Compare this to the way the Southampton lot acted, not turining up for training etc. Although I thought we had a good deal on the table, keeping Jordan is still great news.

To all the irrational doom merchants having a go at Bowyer I'd say you're showing nothing more than a lack of footballing knowledge and the worst in part-time supporters. Get behind the club or stay away.

Yes, that was sneaky of Hull to wait until all the season tickets have been sold and the new strips have been put on offer before they made their bid for Rhodes. They could have waited until the transfer window was closed instead of bidding when the season has just started. They will probably make an offer that will activate the buy out clause. I've supported Rovers since 1958 and we have never had to sell our best players before. Hull City have no respect for Rovers fans - out with the lot of them.

Wow, didn't expect this outcome. The local Hull newspaper have just put up a story that says Jordan deal close lol.

If I was to guess I would say that Venky's wanted at least £12m, and Hull wanted to pay around £10-11m (with a lot of this addons). I'm not surprised Venky's pulled the plug. By the time we would have paid Huddersfield their sell on clause we would have barely got our money back on Rhodes. I think maybe the Venky's asked Bowyer for his thoughts on what to do. Because something dramatic might have happened to halt a transfer mid-negotiation when the valuation was only perhaps a 1-2 million short.

Glad he his staying because to replace him with a similar player with just a week to go in the transfer window would be extremely difficult (and costly due to the lateness) and would probably have completely wrecked any promotion challenge.

If we can just get some cover in defence next week we should be okay. But it is a tough division, so im not getting too excited about promotion just yet.

Well done Venky's (providing they don't now do a u-turn).

My guess would be Hull have offered staged payment terms and this is not acceptable to Venky's as sell on clauses and add on's would not be either.
Good news for you however if you could get £12m and use that in this transfer window I think that would enhance your promotion aims far greater. Imagine the defence you could create.
Will all come down to how much Hull want him and how much he is in Bruce's plans. Hull will back Bruce, no doubt there.

Going to be a long tough season but I don't think you can argue with Bowyer's judgement. We'll have a string of bad results at some point, it could be one today, but we need to get behind them.

This is being brilliantly stage managed, with damage limitation all round. Hull will eventually offer the right amount, Rhodes will then put in the transfer request, simples. The fans won't be able to slate either Venkys or GB and would still welcome JR back at Ewood if ever he returned on the opposing side. The club will also save further on the deal if the usual waivers are in place. Get real people, Rhodes could have a stinker today but the 100 appearances will still be applauded.

Agreed things have improved that's for sure, I think sometimes we get so disappointed with it all and he's the easy one to blame!!! I do question the negative tactics, I watched Leicester last year and each time they went a goal up they pressed for another, the second we do it's defend for out lives and invite pressure, that's ok for last 5 mins we do it with 30 mins left!! We aren't good enough for that!!! And it kills me when we play Williamson and I see Marshall and king on the bench!! Surely the way to protect our defence is keep the ball away from there and attack

Will all come down to how much Hull want him and how much he is in Bruce's plans. Hull will back Bruce, no doubt there.
Is that the best you can do? And what's happening at your club zzzzzzz

On this one well done venkys so far.

Great news because without Jordan this squad had no chance of a top six finish, with him, hopefully we can do it.

However, to everyone praising Venkys - why have they announced this on Hull's SECOND bid ? - if he wasn't for sale at any price why didn't they just say so when Hull made their first bid?

It was widely reported that Venkys would accept £12m - but it actually seems like Hull would not go beyond £10m and for Rovers to have 1 of three players they offered - obviously this was a no go and so Venkys have now said he is "NOT FOR SALE".

Great news for us fans but if the price is right the Venkys will do whats best for THEMSEVLES not necessarily what is best for BRFC.

Because it makes sense to listen what the second bid was. If they offered a huge fee then there's an argument to say it could be in the best interests of the club.

Looks like the second bid was nit acceptable so they went back and said "you are nowhere near. We don't want to drag this out so negotiations are now at an end. "

Personally, I think the risks involved in losing him far out way any potential fee at this stage of the season. They've done the right thing in listening and closing negotiations down when it was evident that the financial gain wasn't good enough.

To all the irrational doom merchants having a go at Bowyer I'd say you're showing nothing more than a lack of footballing knowledge and the worst in part-time supporters. Get behind the club or stay away.
Agree with most of what you say but I was one to criticise bowyer! For that I'm wrong but I could never be criticised for not living my team I think myself as well as a lot of other fans on here react instinctively!! Losing Jordan now would have been unthinkable and it's made my day he's staying!!
Nice one.
Going to be a long tough season but I don't think you can argue with Bowyer's judgement. We'll have a string of bad results at some point, it could be one today, but we need to get behind them.
Bowyer's not perfect but he's getting a lot more right than wrong and it's all going in the right direction.
Agreed things have improved that's for sure, I think sometimes we get so disappointed with it all and he's the easy one to blame!!! I do question the negative tactics, I watched Leicester last year and each time they went a goal up they pressed for another, the second we do it's defend for out lives and invite pressure, that's ok for last 5 mins we do it with 30 mins left!! We aren't good enough for that!!! And it kills me when we play Williamson and I see Marshall and king on the bench!! Surely the way to protect our defence is keep the ball away from there and attack
Marshall's in the team for today!

Bowyer's not perfect but he's getting a lot more right than wrong and it's all going in the right direction.[/p][/quote]Agreed things have improved that's for sure, I think sometimes we get so disappointed with it all and he's the easy one to blame!!! I do question the negative tactics, I watched Leicester last year and each time they went a goal up they pressed for another, the second we do it's defend for out lives and invite pressure, that's ok for last 5 mins we do it with 30 mins left!! We aren't good enough for that!!! And it kills me when we play Williamson and I see Marshall and king on the bench!! Surely the way to protect our defence is keep the ball away from there and attack[/p][/quote]Marshall's in the team for today! HHHH

Well done rovers and venkys.

To all the irrational doom merchants having a go at Bowyer I'd say you're showing nothing more than a lack of footballing knowledge and the worst in part-time supporters. Get behind the club or stay away.
Agree with most of what you say but I was one to criticise bowyer! For that I'm wrong but I could never be criticised for not living my team I think myself as well as a lot of other fans on here react instinctively!! Losing Jordan now would have been unthinkable and it's made my day he's staying!!
Nice one.

Bowyer's not perfect but he's getting a lot more right than wrong and it's all going in the right direction.
