Jeffers Prices HIMSELF Out of Move!!
Blackburn Rovers striker Francis Jeffers looks like remaining at Ewood Park now after Ipswich Town failed to agree terms with him.
For months now Rovers have been adamant that Jeffers would only leave on their terms, and until now their valuation hadn't been reached. However, Ipswich Chairman David Sheepshanks has revealed that a fee HAD been agreed but no agreement could be reached with the 26-year-old on personal terms.
The one time England International's successful loan with the Championship side last season made them eager to finalise a permanent deal but it looks like Jeffers himself has put an end to this with his wage demands!!! So Ipswich will now be looking elsewhere, which means (unless someone else comes in for him) we will be keeping Jeffers this season.
Sheepshanks told the Official Ipswich Town Website:
"We made what we felt was a very lucrative offer to Franny and it was an offer that could exceed what he is earning at Blackburn.
"But unfortunately, despite our extensive efforts, we have not been able to match what the player wants financially from the deal.
"We have a duty to protect the wage structure at this club and will not put that at risk.
"The offer we made to Franny was a very good one in line with his status."
