Roeder Tries To Lure Rigters Away From Ewood

Norwich manager Glenn Roeder is trying to end Maceo Rigters' Blackburn hell and bring the Dutch striker back to Carrow Road from Blackburn, this time permanently.

Rovers have stated recently they are willing to listen to offers for the former Dutch Under-21 international, who was brought in by Roeder on a short term loan deal towards the back end of the last campaign.

However, his time with the mid table Canaries was cut short by a hamstring injury he picked up during a match against Bristol City after coming on as a sub.

The 24-year-old forward signed for Blackburn on a four-year deal from NAC Breda last summer. Despite the hype that came with his arrival he failed to take his limited chances, a terrible game against Coventry in the FA Cup springs to mind, and became 5th choice striker.

Blackburn however would want to recoup their original outlay for the striker, they paid 350,000 for him last summer after an impressive stint at the U-21 UEFA Championships for Holland.

His time could well be up at Ewood Park.

I think if we can make our money back absolute minimum then we should go for it.

I think we could get half a mill for him be a good deal.
roverjoy
I agree Roverjoy.... any advance on 500k???
MikeyGamst
We're skint. Can we have him for 350k? I think that could be the message from Glenn Roeder. He should do OK in the championship.

Another mistake by Sparky. How come you bring a player after watching him for only 4-5 games? And if so- how come you never let him play?!?! At least give him a decent chance...

I am not so sure about this. He has only being here a year and it has taken this and longer for some great players to get going in the premiership. I think we should loan him to Norwich till Christmas and if we still dont see any improvement by then sell him on. It is not as if we are that badly stuck for 350k and he did have a hell of a tournament last year. And they do say that class is permanent,
del
Very fair point that del.. time will tell me think.

IsraeliRover - You say ANOTHER mistake by Sparky!!! Come on dude he doesn't make many!!!
Hughes Da Man
I dont think there is any mistake with the talent Rigters has, i do think it must be something to do with his temperment. He finished top scorer in the U21 championship so the talent is there. I think if he goes unless Derbyshire gets injured and Roberts leaves we'll not miss him at all
