Rovers could lose Hoilett for a pittance

Rovers could be facing disappointment in the Junior Hoilett contract saga with information coming to light that could see Rovers getting less than 1 million for their star man.

With the likes of Spurs and Liverpool loitering around Hoilett with his contract running out it was assumed that Rovers would lose the Canadian but still pick up a handsome enough fee at the tribunal as he has been nurtured at the club since he was 13.

But if Hoilett elects for a move to mainland Europe with the likes Bayern Munich interested then the fee could be a lot less with different rules for compensation set over in Germany.

The Daily Mail has clarified - 'The rules of the governing body state that clubs are only entitled to 90,000 Euros for each year they have trained a departing player under the age of 23. And as Hoilett has been at Blackburn for nine years, his fee would equate to 810,000 Euros.'

The club for some reason are still confident they can get Junior to sign a new deal at Rovers, no explanation as to the reasoning behind this as there likely isn't any.

I am sure it will not make much difference to the fans but it does lose the club money even if Venky's are still here...

I'd rather he went like that than the club get a massive fee for him only to see it *****ed away like the Jones money was.

More poor decision making by the owners.... will they ever learn. Probably not.

Shame it has come to this as 18 months he go he was all set to sign a new deal and the player wanted it to... now the player has the power (again).

Unbelievable. Well, actually, no. Not at all unbelievable. Far too familiar a tale. Another almighty mess.
