'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Big Sam confident of young duo staying

Big Sam Allardyce is extremely calm and confident when it comes to the futures of young stars Phil Jones and Steven N'Zonzi.

The Rovers gaffer does admit that if a BIG offer came in then they would be forced to sell - but that is unlikely given the size of the offers that he has in mind.

Allardyce speaking to Sky Sports said - "When you look at Chris Smalling`s situation, he plays four (league) games and he is sold for 10million,"

"That`s how quickly things happen when a new player emerges on the scene like him and Phil Jones. They create a stir in the world of football.

"I do fear a big club will come and take him, and it doesn`t matter he is currently on a longish-term contract because if they offer enough money we would have to sell him. It`s as simple as that.

"But the money would have to be rather large, to say the least, so I`m very confident he`ll be here (next season).

"I don`t see a club stumping up the sort of money that would be in my mind to even consider letting him go."

I am pretty sure myself that there will be speculation about our young boys over the summer but now is not the time to be selling these startlets if you will.

I am sure at some point in the future we will need to cash in to raise our budget but it won't be this summer.
