Rovers Reject Villa Warnock Bid

Rovers Reject Villa Warnock Bid

Aston Villa have had a bid of about £4 million turned down by Blackburn for left back/midfielder Stephen Warnock.

Martin O`Neill wants to bring in a left sided defender but has more chance of platting urine than getting Stephen for that paltry bid.

Rovers are expecting a lot more than that and even then they would not been keen sellers due to the versatility and consistency of Rovers player of the season.

There are even some reports nipping around that Rovers would want maybe treble that before even considering selling.

To be fair you can't blame Villa for trying but in what crazy world is Glen Johnson worth £17 million and Stephen Warnock worth £4 million?!

Apparently Sam has laughed at this bid and rightly so - it nowhere near represents the value Stephen has.

i think martin o'neill needs a slap across the back of the head for bein so damn cheeky! that bid is an insult to every rover around the world! warnock is a world class left back who can also excel in the centre of the park! if he thinks he can replace barry that easily and that cheapily, he can F*ck right off!

Haven't heard anything about a bid from the villa side... Seems strange that we would bid for him though, cause we have shorey and soon wilfred bouma back for the left back role not to mention young who often played left back for us. What we seriously need is a CB and Warnock seems to be more of a good left back than a commanding centre half... Might be completely wrong :D and I wouldn't mind us getting him. But your right I don't seem him going for anything less than 8 million.

Not convinced by this report (in the press, not your's MikeyD) a press man I spoke with close to Villa says they were steered away from this link a few weeks ago. Not saying that things haven't changed etc but not convinced.
