Interest in Nonda cooling...
Lancashires' finest football club are believed to be losing interest in taking AS Roma loanee Shabani 'Chris' Nonda on a more permanent basis.
Hughes is now reluctant to spend £2 million of our currently limited transfer budget on a player who failed to set the Premiership alight during his first year in English football and actually goes looking for offside decisions at every available opportunity.
A player who believe it or not once cost Monaco £13 million, is also thought to be keen on a return to Italian side AS Roma after struggling to fully settle in England.
There are several other European clubs interested in Nonda and this may spark fears that his pirce may spiral as a result of a bidding war.
A Rovers source said: 'Mark still has an interest in Nonda but the fact he still hasn't pushed through a deal suggests he has other targets in mind.'
I for one am not mega keen on Nonda but do acknowledge the player has talent, I think he just lacks the drive and motivation to become a fans favourite or a success in the Premiership.
£2 million could be better spent elsewhere and I think Hughes is realising this now....
