Interest in Nonda cooling...

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....

Mikey Gamst, Leader of the Shabani Nonda fan club.

I think Earnshaw is worth a bash but to be honest, there are many strikers in Europe that we havent heard of before who are better and we could could get for 2 million... Sparky will do us proud...

I have a feeling this is the usual "rovers bias" that is put on stories regarding us from the press. The premise of the story is simply "Rovers haven't agreed to buy yet", and is being sold as "obviously not interested". However, they don't seem to allow for the fact that we are allegedly having takeover talks today, and simply can't be expected to carry out transfer dealings with that in the pipeline. We could buy him (which i think we should) but then find out we have extra cash to splash, and end up with surplus players. We still have 'first dibs' so i would expect us to not respond re Nonda for at least a couple of weeks.
