Jeffers To Sheffield Wednesday?!?!

Jeffers To Sheffield Wednesday?!?!

Blackburn Rovers striker Francis Jeffers is WITHOUT DOUBT on the outside looking in, but could this be about to end with him completing a move away from Ewood Park after all? Sheffield Wednesday appear quite interested.

Recently it was Cardiff City (who denied an interest), and now it is Championship rival Sheffield Wednesday, who have allegedly offered £600,000 (so the Mirror say!!!) for the former England International (one cap and one goal former International!) which might be accepted by Rovers? Only a few weeks ago Rovers were demanding £1 million for him, with Ipswich Town eventually agreeing a deal with Rovers only for Jeffers to blow it with his excessive personal demands.

Even if an agreement can be reached you Jeffers probably do the same to Wednesday wouldn't he?!?! Ipswich were ideal for him, he had been on loan with them, been relatively successful and the tried endlessly to sign him. When they finally looked like they would it seemed that Jeffers' GREED cost him the chance, which made it look like he was happier to count the money doing NOTHING here than doing something he is supposed to love, which is PLAY football!!!

I didn't care either way what he did before, but now he HAS to go, as he has NO future with Rovers. He has the chance to do what most of us would probably kill to do (play football) yet he is happier to collect his money and do NOTHING, criminal if you ask me.

Meanwhile Paul Gallagher (another Rover who will probably find it increasingly hard to play this season?!?!) WILL NOT be going to Preston North End.

It had been rumoured that Lancashire rivals Preston might be interested in Gallagher, but they have denied any interest.

My "not caring what Jeffers did" is rapidly turning into hatred and resentment for him NOT doing something that I would almost literally KILL to do, which is of course play football if I had the chance, which he DID with Ipswich and could with Sheffield Wednesday, but GREED seems to be getting the better of him, ********!!!
I REALLY hope Gally stays, but feel he may have to move on to get the chance he deserves?!?!

Rovers and Hughes took a punt on Jeffers, it didnt work so its about recovering as much as we can on the wages we paid him, I know we got him on a free but with wages and a signing on fee thats bound to be a bit. I wish him all the best, it never worked for him at Rovers but hopefully he can play regular football in the Championship, a place where I think he may need to play for a while if he ever is to re-discover his touch in front of goal. Either that or he has been the luckiest lad in the world of football, earning all that money for no return lol

Yeah he needs to think about his career at this point or he will be on the scrapheap. He needs to accept a contract elsewhere.

Yeah really needs to go or will the winston bogarde of blackburn, please just go, and for money too that would be amazing. I think he would be quite good in the championship though so worth it.

We're having a new trialist- a midfielder called Charlie Barnett (19)- used to play for Liverpool- but I've never heard of him......

this guy was hot property as a youth. he still has some great skills so shouldn't be dissed too lightly, although he's way down the order at rovers now. he'd be a good buy for £600,000, make no mistake.

Yeah, he would be good. It is either GREED preventing him or he has totally bottled it and lost his confidence, maybe he feels by hiding away he will not be exposed?!?! God, Winston Bogarde, how his career boomed at Chelsea!!!
