Rhodes is a Rover

Rhodes is a Rover

Rovers have completed the signing of Jordan Rhodes for a total fee of £8m.

It is believed Rovers will be paying £4.5m up front with the rest of the deal staggered and dependent on incentives, Rhodes himself has penned a five year deal and becomes one of Rovers highest earners.

Understandable delight this afternoon at the capture of Rovers main summer transfer target after weeks of posturing, haggling and three failed bids finally paid off.

Global Advisor Shebby Singh was instrumental in the deal and the driving force behind bringing him to Ewood Park.

It's safe to say the Rovers boss was delighted also.

Steve Kean told the official site - "Jordan is a top class striker and we are absolutely delighted to bring him in. His record is there for all to see and I believe he can play a major role in our drive for promotion back to the Premier League."

Welcome to Ewood Park Jordan Rhodes.

He will score goals in any league IF he gets the service. We can't use the same phrase 'feed Rhodes and he will score' but the philosophy is the same and my thoughts are that Rovers need to find him some 'feeders'. The Yak would't have scored so many without Junior, now he has gone others need to be tasked with being providers. I have been disappointed in the lack of through balls from Murphy so far, I was expecting him to be the provider for a higher number of shots on target than we have had in the last 270 hours played I suspect that, because of his reputation, Rhodes will be played as a lone striker but that would make it easier for opposing players to man mark him out of the game. Two up would be the formation I would prefer, Rhodes would score more and so would the other striker, as most of the defenders focus would be on Rhodes.
