Rovers transfer gossip round up

Rovers transfer gossip round up

For a club that aren't supposed to be doing loads of business this window the gossip is certainly flowing.

Not that I don't believe what I am being told but just saying, thats all!

First off, Everton are now in for Benni McCarthy. The Toffees like ourselves are a bit frigged for money but are exploring a way of completing a £2.5 million deal.

Remember that £2.5 million figure, it will come in handy later...

Next up, it appears that Morten Gamst Pedersen has become a target for Matt Derbyshire's Olympiakos. It has even gone as far as the Greek side making an enquiry for the winger.

Rovers would sell for £2 millon with only 6 months left on his deal, but the Norwegian is apparently not too keen - but with his options running thin, he might need to bail.

On the inbound, the rumours have surfaced again that Blackburn have asked Stoke about James Beattie.

£2.5 million (see I told you) is the figure needed to prize James away from the Britannia - and if we can acquire him then Benni could be on his way.

So it all ties in together you see!

Not bad shouts at all today, am I right in saying we would all jump at the chance to grab £2 million for MGP?

I'm not being funny, but all of a sudden, gamst has picked up his performances a bit? that always happens though, when hes trying to move... id say £2.5 million, because u never know, a move could bring out the best in him! Benny for 2.5 million... NOO! he is worth 5m at least! and what about this Beattie for Roberts swap deal?

Why on earth would David Moyes think that McCarthy would be the answer to his prayers.

McCarthys age will count against him though - no-one is mad enough to pay £5 million for tempremental, attitude conscious, 32 year old striker, no matter how good he is!!!

I don't care what happens as long as we get a couple of strikers that know where the net is!! I have always, like most people, big fans of Benni and Jase but you have to admit that Benni has not been consistent enough to warrant a regular start and Roberts simply does not score enough. It gets to the point where if we can get a good amount of cash (2.5 each would suffice), we move on and try someone else up-front. I think Beattie would be excellent, but we could do with another.

Beattie will get goals but not a lot else... like Benni used to be Beattie would come without the flair! I would settle for that!

Jason Roberts off for 2.5M, i would settle for that. He came here for 3M, and i remembered the Wigan fans commented that that was a great piece of business, absolutely delighted to see the back of him at Wigan and 3M in the pocket. Come on, bring in Beattie!
