Rovers captain Scott Dann, who scored the equaliser in the 1-1 FA Cup draw with Manchester City, is believed to be on Crystal Palace's wanted list, with the Eagles considering lodging a bid of around £2.5million.

Bowyer is aware he needs to trim the club's wage bill after signing Tom Cairney and Rudy Gestede for a combined £800,000.

But the Rovers manager insists he is under no pressure to sell, and will only consider offers for players if they match his valuation.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: "If people are interested in our players and make sensible bids then we will consider them.

"We do have to reduce in certain areas and certain players that's for sure.

"But we are not a charity case."

One player who will not be leaving Ewood Park in January is top-scorer Rhodes, who scored 30 league goals in 2013 - more than any other player in English professional football.

The Scotland striker has been linked with an £8m move to Championship rivals Nottingham Forest.

But Bowyer insists the prolific marksman is staying put, saying: "Jordan Rhodes isn't for sale.

"I was never very good at maths but we paid £8m for him, then he goes and scores the most goals in the calendar year - more than Luis Suarez - and yet he is still valued at £8m.

"That doesn't quite add up to me - but then again I'm no Carol Vorderman!"

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
