Huddersfield will be keeping close tabs on old boy Jordan Rhodes’ situation at Blackburn amid reports Rovers have slapped a £10m price tag on the goalscoring star.

It’s claimed the 24-year-old has requested a pay rise after an £8m bid from Norwich was rejected.

That’s the fee Blackburn paid Town two years ago, with the John Smith’s Stadium club due to pocket a fifth of any profit made should he be sold on.

The Scotland international has netted 53 times for Rovers and is under contract until 2017.

 

He scored a hat trick against Town as Blackburn won 4-2 at the John Smith’s in a Championship clash in March.

Rhodes notched 87 goals in three seasons at Town after moving from Ipswich in a £400,000 deal in 2009.

Norwich, who will benefit from parachute payments after relegation from the Premier League, are desperate to make a quick return.

Any transfer to the Norfolk club would add to the woe of fans of arch-rivals Ipswich, who were strongly against his move to Town.

Norwich have already signed two frontmen this summer – Lewis Grabban from Bournemouth and Northern Ireland international Kyle Lafferty from Palermo.

Blackburn have also brought in two frontmen, Chris Brown from Doncaster, and Luke Varney, who had a spell on loan last season, from Leeds.

Rovers are aiming to mark the 20th anniversary of their Premier League title triumph by winning promotion back to the top flight after being relegated in 2012.
