Reports yesterday were suggesting City have made an astounding bid for Blackburn's Jordan Rhodes, Huddersfield's The Daily Examiner, claimed yesterday that City had lodged am £8mill bid to bring Rhodes back to East Anglia Huddersfield will be keeping a close eye on proceedings as they stand to be presented with a 20% sell on fee. .
The report goes on to say Rovers rejected the bid and slapped a £10 mill price tag on his head. Which is simply crazy money for a championship player.
Can you see City even bidding £8mill for him, somehow I cannot surely this would make a large hole in Adam's budget, the only way I could see anything close to this happening is Gary Hooper being sold to perhaps QPR for at least what we paid for him, believed to be in the region of £5mill. That could then be used to help fund the deal.
But with Rovers putting such a high fee on his head I personally think that will end City's interest. It is quite clear that rival championship clubs see the relegated sides awash with money after Fulham supposed £11mill deal with Leeds, I can not see David McNally being held to ransome over any player, remember the Craig Mackall Smith saga.
