Jeffers' Future Decided This Weekend
Blackburn Rovers Chairman John Williams says the future of Rovers striker Francis Jeffers will be decided one way or the other this weekend.
Jeffers is one of a few players that will leave, or have been told they can leave if the right offer comes in. So far Championship side Ipswich Town have had two bids rejected, this weekend will give them the final chance to up their offer (using some of the sell on fee they received from Charlton Athletic when they sold Darren Bent to Tottenham Hotspur) or they miss out, or maybe someone else nips in?!?!
John Williams told the Lancashire Telegraph:
"We are in dialogue with a couple of interested parties over Franny.
"I think if a deals is not done by this weekend then we carry on. We have said we don't want to stand in his way, but these things tend to have a normal lifespan and if these ones are not done in the next 48 hours I suspect he will remain with us."
Meanwhile the battle for Craig Bellamy should hot up with Fernando Torres making his big money move to Liverpool.
Bellamy now looks certain to leave Anfield following the arrival of Torres (if he wasn't already before!!!), but will this lead him back to Ewood Park? Liverpool might want at least £9 million though!!!
The Lancashire Telegraph report that West Ham United could be in talks with Bellamy over a £70,000 per week move to Upton Park, and Sunderland are also interested as they look to bolster their squad.
