Rovers increase mystery striker bid

Rovers have made an improved bid for their main striker target, who remains a mystery.

Rovers have decided to not name the man for fear of a deal being hijacked but early rumours that the man's name is Cristiano Ronaldo seem a little wide of the mark ;)

Rovers chairman John Williams broke the news in a short, sharp and shiny statement.

Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph - 'We have made an improved offer for a player and are waiting to hear the outcome of it. Negotiations will be ongoing this week.'

The plot thickens...

i'm assuming this would be a steal because of all the worry about a hijack?
the shire
must be messi then :D

Crouch is available for around 7 million, that should've been a comfortable sum for us after all our high profile sales last season but we all know this mystery man we're after will be about 3 million.
ITSALLROVER
Lets hope so shire!!!
Mikey Delap
Sky sports reckon it's Utaka from pompey. Can't be no more than 3 million surely if it is.
ITSALLROVER
I hope not!!!! He is not that good IMO....
Mikey Delap
Sky say it is Pompeys Utaka Hope not, his goal scoring record in the premiership is abysmal, something like 7 goals in 3 years I think. Keep the millions to pay off part of the bank debt. Even Roberts is better than Utaka.

I hope not as well I don't think he's the elusive goalscorer we're after. I know a few clubs are after him though, thought he was off to Rangers.
ITSALLROVER
I really hope it's not Utaka, prefer Bance or Jo
Marsmanic
maybe it's ameobi like?
the shire
i prefer the earlier rumour of ronaldo. lets stick with that
retroflair31
Well its obviously Adebayor from city....... i wish lol
mutts nutts
It could be Utaka's brother in Denmark (OB), maybe sky confused the names....cheers
riisenholt
Just read that Ivan Klasnic has had his contract ended early by Nantes. I think he did ok for Bolton last season and could be a decent free signing. Thoughts anyone..?
SyekotikRover
Rovers have denied it's Utaka thankfully, But the Jo rumour aint going away and if we could get him for a bargain price we would be on a winner imo
glen9mullan
Jo and Diouf seems the likely option me thinks???
Mikey Delap
I agree Mikey, definitely hotting up on those two, seems like a good option aswell, not sure how much city would be willing to let Jo go for though?? seems like we would be replacing di santo with diouf
