Blackburn Rovers striker Francis Jeffers WILL be staying at Ewood Park, and WON'T be sent out on loan this season. Instead Mark Hughes expects him to fight for a place in the team.
It was expected that Jeffers would leave Ewood this summer, and was told that if the right offer came him he could. This right offer eventually came in from Ipswich Town; however, Jeffers would not agree personal terms so nothing happened and he stayed here.
With FOUR strikers ahead of him in the pecking order Jeffers faces an uphill battle to even get on the bench, but having seen a move away fail to materialise he will be staying, and Hughes (who has said all along that Jeffers is still part of his plans) is adamant that he WON'T be allowed to leave on loan again this term, instead he WILL have to fight for his place.
Rovers Boss Hughes said (these quotes were taken from Sky Sports, but I do not know if they were said directly to them?):
"He's still part of our plans but it's just going to be a little bit more difficult for Franny to break through.
"But he's here and he's our player and I won't be looking to send him out on loan.
"He'll be here and trying to get in the side."
