Rover ’n out for Hoi­lett

Midweek Sport - - SPORT - By NEIL JOHN­STON

BLACK­BURN are set to take a mas­sive fi­nan­cial hit if winger Ju­nior Hoi­lett leaves the club this sum­mer.

Spurs and New­cas­tle are ready to pounce when Hoi­lett’s deal runs out at the end of the cur­rent cam­paign.

Bay­ern Mu­nich are also keen on the highly-rated 21-year-old, who is reluc­tant to com­mit long-term to Steve Kean’s strug­glers.

Rovers would be en­ti­tled to com­pen­sa­tion un­der the terms of the Bos­man rul­ing be­cause Hoi­lett is un­der the age of 23.

But trans­fers be­tween na­tional as­so­ci­a­tions are sub­ject to dif­fer­ent rules.

And it is un­der­stood that Black­burn would be en­ti­tled to less than £700,000 if Hoi­lett does head to Ger­many.

Should Hoi­lett

join an­other English side, a fee would be de­cided by tri­bunal if it can­not be agreed be­tween the two clubs.

Hoi­lett, whose per­for­mances have seen his value rocket to £5mil­lion, has been one of the few pos­i­tives in a de­press­ing sea­son for rel­e­ga­tion-threat­ened Rovers.

He has net­ted three times this term, but all Black­burn’s at­tempts to pin him down to a new deal have so far failed. OUT OF AC­TION: Ed­win van der Sar says he won’t be re­turn­ing to Man United’s first team

like his old team-mate Paul Sc­holes

NO DEAL: Hoi­lett

wants to leave
