Derbs' Greek Tragedy?!?!
Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Derbyshire looks destined to stay with the club if newspaper reports are to be believed???
It's understood that Rovers are asking for £5 million for the 23-year-old having already rejected an offer of £3 million from Olympiakos. Derbyshire has said that he'll leave it to the clubs to decide the matter and I personally do think that he'd be happy to stay at Ewood Park but would only do so if he was going to get first-team football next season, however, I'm not sure that Derbs will get that chance!!!
£5 million is a fair price to ask as the England Under-21 International is fairly established as a footballer and certainly knows where the goal is (as we and they've found out) so it's not like Rovers are asking an over the top price for Derbs. I'd be thrilled to see the striker stay at Ewood but if we priced Derbs out of a move and then didn't use him as much as he deserves next season then this isn't going to do us or him any favours.
Meeting in the middle at £4m (which personally I think is still cheap) might see this resolved??
