Where Are the Rovers Going?
Several Blackburn Rovers players were told they could leave (with one even told his contract will not be renewed) but where and when are they going?
Michael Gray has been told his contract will not be renewed, so he's gone. Peter Enckelman, Francis Jeffers and Andy Todd have all been told they are free to leave if an adequate offer comes in.
There has been significant interest in Jeffers, nothing that I am aware of as far as Enckelman and Gray are concerned, but the focus of this article though is Andy Todd.
Todd has basically been a dead-man walking for the past 12-months, or more. The real turning point was his disgust at being substituted in a match towards the end of the 2005-2006 season when (unless I am wrong?) he showed his distain by throwing the captains armband to the floor in Mark Hughes' direction, not a good idea.
Hughes views and visions for the club did not involve Todd (who had been a good for the club but we are going in different directions, and my personally opinion is Todd is not up to the Premiership any longer in any case) but he is still here despite his agent (none other than Peter Harrison!) bigging him up and touting his services to others, even claiming of interest from teams north and south of the boarder, including Bolton Wanderers, Birmingham City, Charlton Athletic, Portsmouth, Wigan Athletic and Glasgow Rangers.
Since Todd has been told that he can leave if the right offer is made things seem to have gone VERY quiet, especially where Harrison is concerned.
Is it a case of Harrison exaggerating interest in Todd or is it the reported £1 million price tag Rovers have put on his head?
