£7 Million For Stephen Warnock??

£7 Million For Stephen Warnock??

Blackburn Rovers left-back Stephen Warnock isn't any stranger to speculation about his future being somewhere other than Ewood Park.

Aston Villa are understood to have taken a very keen interest in the England International, however, Tottenham Hotspur (don't they want EVERYONE!!) are also understood to have joined the bidding with Harry Redknapp an avid fan of Warnock's.

Reports of £7 million being enough to tempt Rovers to part with Warnock can't be true can they!? The Rovers Player of the Year is as good as any left-back in the country (English wise, maybe Ashley Cole aside) so he MUST be worth more than £7 million EVEN if we were interested in selling, something that I'd hope we're not!!

If (and that's a big if) we decided to let Stevie W leave I'd personally expect it to be for A LOT more than £7 million, given the prices that England players usually sell for (and they often sell for a lot more than most players) I'd personally be expecting at least double that amount.

However, WHY sell anyway as how will that make us stronger?? I know we have Gael Givet (who's been a very good signing) but who's to say there isn't room for both in the side, as I personally feel there is!!

I wouldn't want to see Warnock leave Rovers - he's hard working and committed, not to say versatile, but, this rumour has an uncomfortable feel to it. A big transfer fee could prove tempting as there is already cover at left back with Givet and Ollson - £7m+ could allow BSA to strengthen elsewhere. Hopefully, none of this is true and Stephen Warnock sees his future at Ewood.

LMFAO thats all i can say! but if it reaches closer to 10mil i would accept! givet is outstanding at left back! got cover already! and we could do with a top nitch midfielder! happy days what ever the outcome

where has he impressed most recently, at LB or in the midfield? Clearly his versatility would be a huge benefit to someone. Personally I would expect Villa to be the team to push hardest at this time.

Warnock is an excellent full back, worth much more than the £7M quoted, particularly in light of the recent Johnson transfer, however I can't help the feeling that he has been angling for a move since Hughes departed for money central, if that is the case flog him and get as much as you can

I don't think the spurs interest in Warnock is genuine, just born out of the popular stereotype (from journos who never watched a game last year that) our left side is 5hite. Even if there was interest from us or Villa nothing would come of it becasue there's no value to Blackburn in selling a quality fullback for nowt and not being able to replace him, and we know first hand what a push over Mr Williams is ;-)

Best player a bit of a talisman as well, think he could play a role in midfield this year as well Givet.

I wouldn'tsell him for less than £12-14m ... I've seen some ridiculous sums thrown around for average players this summer. We are not selling one of our finest players for pennies. Honestly., someone show me a better player you can buy for £7m. Glen Johnson cost £17 ffs!

warnock is almost as good as glen johnson, johnson is abit better going forward, but warnock is versatile! he should fetch a decent amount as well if we sold him, £10mil upwards! but then again, who would want to sell him?! :) haha

This speculation has come around because we've bought Givet - however, BSA says we ain't gonna sell anyone else - so thats that!

Dont panic, theres been no concrete bids for Warnock at all this summer but unfortunatly, from what Ive heard, the club would accept around 7 million for him. Sad but I guess thats indicitive of the position we are in.
