Blackburn Rovers striker Jordan Rhodes could finally make his move to the Premier League in January with the Championship club needing to sell players this winter, as reported by BBC Sport.
Rhodes has been in fine form once again this season, notching 12 times for mid-table Blackburn, continuing his form from recent seasons where he has notched in excess of 20 times each year since 2008.
The 23 year old is one of the hottest prospects outside of the Premier League and clubs are lining up around the corner to snap him up, including West Ham, Sunderland, Aston Villa and Cardiff.
Rovers boss Gary Bowyer knows the clubs finances are not healthy and that players will need to be sold in January, however the 42 year old hopes that funds can be raised by selling fringe players rather than Rhodes.
“It’s been well documented about our accounts,” Bowyer told BBC Radio Lancashire.
“We have drawn up targets but I think we’ll be more reactive than proactive in the market in January.”
The 42-year-old continued: “It’s been well documented that we’re going to have to get the players on the fringes of it.”
