Rovers make Rhodes bid
Blackburn manager Steve Kean has confirmed the club have made an official bid for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes.
Kean is in the hunt for a new forward as £3million summer signing Leon Best has been ruled out for six months with knee ligament damage and Rhodes, who struck 40 goals last season, is his top target. Barclays Premier League side Fulham have already had a reported £2million bid for Rhodes rejected by Huddersfield. "We've put in a bid and we'll see if that's accepted by his club," Kean told BBC Radio Lancashire. "If it's not there will obviously be a limit, a tipping point for us, where we'll have to look elsewhere. "I don't know at this stage if we're close to that tipping point, but if they blatantly tell us he's not for sale and would rather we didn't bid, then we move on to someone else." Kean also confirmed his interest in former Sheffield United player Colin Kazim-Richards, who has been playing in Europe for the past five seasons, most recently with Olympiacos, adding: "We've got Colin Kazim-Richards here for a few days and we're hopeful we can do something on that and we're actively trying to bring in a permanent signing as well, so we've been busy since we've lost Besty."
