Rovers dig in against Man United
Phil Jones' move to Manchester United from Blackburn Rovers has still not been completed and it is becoming clear why - the full fee is being haggled over.
Rovers value Jones in excess of the £16 million that his release fee states and Man United are trying to keep the cost down.
The mains ticking point is that the release fee is apparently just the figure neded to start the negotiation with the player not the full sale figure. Something that Rovers are standing firm on.
Venky's believe Jones is worth closer to £25 million and United are yet to comment on the deal officially.
So it appears we have a stand off. But it is good to see the club hold out for Jones' true worth.
