First Greek Bid For Matty Turned Down

First Greek Bid For Matty Turned Down

Word has just reached us that a first bid of £3 million from Olympiacos was rejected by Rovers for the services of England u-21 striker Matt Derbyshire but the Greeks should be back in the next days to up the stakes.

Matt was on loan to Olympiacos since January but is now back in England getting treatment for an minor injury sustained in April.

The Greek side are really keen to do business as Derbyshire was a roaring success over there so an improved bid seems the next logical step.

With Derbs wanting the most football he can get it is 50/50 now whether he will be at Ewood come August. Matty wants to play and maybe feels he wont get loads at his boyhood team - he might feel he can get more at Olympiacos.

Matt is expected to have a chat with Big Sam to see what will be on tap for him at Rovers if he decides to stay - Rovers are always his first choice but he has commented that he is at a stage of his career where he needs to be pressing on.

This is a toughone to call as a permanent move abroad is a big step. But you are right Sas, he sint over doing it. he jsut wants what is best for him which is fair play.

I agree Derbs is letting the clubs do the talking so fair play to him but I would like to see him stay and perhaps given a bit of a run in the side up front because if we create chances he will take them. Still hoping he stays.

I want him to stay - he's an up and coming talent, he doesn't moan and he loves the club! If he won't get many chances, loan him again and let him build up his experience - but don't sell him!

it's sad that he's "forced" to leave because the club doesn't value his skillset at the moment. i hope the club can think hard about this.

£3 million is an insult

Apparently word is coming out that we are actually keen to keep him. I would keep him and play him!

i think when u look around and u see other strikers around the same age - Martins (who may or not be in his 30's if u believe some reports lol) who seem to command figures up and around £10m, Nugent went for more and did nothing at Portsmouth, so £3m is an insult, im sure that if he played he would prove his point and score goals for Rovers so I def wouldnt want him to leave - i think as a club we have to keep homegrown players like Derbs, he has talent, we just need to unleash it on the league.......
