Rovers striker search continues

Rovers are searching hard after yesterday's big blow in the form of Leon Best's injury lay off.

An extra striker is now required with Best out for at least six months and the club have started the process of trying to add to the club striking resources with Nuno Gomes, Edinho and David Goodwillie the only recognised strikers fit and ready at the club.

We all learned last night that the Simon Cox transfer which has been lined up has been blocked by the powers that be at the club even though Cox himself was expecting the deal to go through. Rovers could go back to this if need be but right now the club believe there is high quality fish available from the pond.

Further news comes in the form of an approach for Jordan Rhodes which could have been made as early as last week.

A enquiry is believed to have been lodged with a bid of around £5m for the red hot Huddersfield hit man but the news that came back was that he wasn't for sale at any price. Huddersfield are likely to be loathe to lose their man to a team from the same division as well.

The search continues...

Would love us to bag someone like Rhodes but I can't see it happening.

Swansea have bid for Simon Cox, so i am guessing he definately won't be coming to Ewood. Rhodes would be an awesome signing.

Why bother? With all the Portugese players at the club no doubt Keano will be thinking of playing the Spanish 4-6-0 formation. Simples - no strikers needed!

You know, Jason Roberts does a decent job at Championship level. Maybe we should have a look at him...

Keano should look at the Brazilian Diego Costa, Atlético Madrid 23 years old was out on loan last season at Rayo Vallecano and in 16 apps scored 10 not that bad and he's still young think it would be a okay buy
