Third time lucky for Ipswich?

Third time lucky for Ipswich?

Reports are circulating that Ipswich Town are to bid a third and final time for Blackburn's Francis Jeffers.

This latest bid from the Suffolk based club is apparently their final offer for the player who ended last season on loan with the Tractor boys.

The fee at present is unclear but the initial cash offer does not meet Rovers valuation of £1 million but there are add ons included that may take the final fee up to the magic million mark.

Stay tuned folks!

If Rovers are willing to part with Jeffers then I think that this would be the time, Ipswich are playing the game, same as Rovers and a decent cash offer plus incentives could be beneficial to both teams.

God I hope we accept this one. It's embarrasing to have to refer to him as a Blackburn player!
15/06/2007 12:20:00
I say let him go for any money.. we got him on a free and he isn't really worth too much more! Put poor Ipswitch out of their misery also!

why are we seriously holding on to him, we need the cash, not the playyer

We're just bargaining. The amount of people that said we should accept the first offer honestly amazed me. To use the words of a very wise man "We didn't get where we are today" by just letting people go for any old amount. Football is a business whether we like it or not, and i'm glad we have seemingly one of the wisest men in charge of our affairs.

PS. I think the poll for right back is a bit of a dead cert :-D

I still can't see them meeting the £1 million asking price, but it would be closer, but close enough?!?! We'll find out soon. Had the Darren Bent deal to the Hammered gone through (SEVENTEEN MILLION!!!) then Ipswich would have had a 20% slice of this, but as it hasen't (unless it has again now?!?!) then personally I still couldn't see them stumping up £1 million, but £750,000 or thereabouts could well be enough.

Head Rover Heels - Nah, Keith Newton fans are waiting for their moment! Seriously though, Newton was a GREAT footballer for club and country but Crompton was EVEN greater, without any shadow of a doubt for club, Mr Blackburn was ALWAYS going to be in this team.

I still think we'll get the million - He's not going to West Ham, but i wouldn't be surprised to see him pootle off to Spurs or Liverpool to be honest. They might not go to 17M, but he'll still go for a big wedge, thus frothing Ipswich's coffers enough to stump up the cash.

20% slice of £10 million minimum (as Charlton will at least get that won;t they, even if he isn't worth it!) will see Ipswich alright won't it so yeah chances are we could still get £1 million, perhaps?!?! if he stays maybe, just maybe it was meant to be that he stayed and plays a part next season?!?! (clutching at straws perhaps more than spings to mind!)
