Jordan Rhodes: Blackburn striker wanted by Wigan

Wigan are looking to bolster their options ahead of the close of the transfer window and have made the offer to Rovers.

However, it is understood that the Ewood Park side have turned down Wigan's approach, with the sum tabled less than Blackburn paid for the player 12 months ago.

Blackburn spent £8million on Rhodes to sign him from Huddersfield last year, and he enjoyed a very good debut campaign with Rovers, claiming 28 goals.

It is expected that Wigan will return with a new offer before the deadline on Monday evening, but Rovers do not appear to be willing to do business.

o is Jordan Ibe overqualified for this list or what? To be honest I was expecting to see his name, I thought he'd fit in perfectly. Maybe his name is too familiar? Because otherwise this list should be made for him. You could actually just insert his name & stats into the middle paragraph about Brandt and it would describe Ibe.

hat a wonderful compliment - that Wenger has been able to raise more funds for players running a football club than Jose's patron has in running the economy of a small country. I guess it shows there are different kinds of success.
