Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY AUG 9 -

BLACK­BURN have had a bid turned down for Hud­der­s­field hot­shot Jor­dan Rhodes.

Rovers of­fered a deal worth up to £6mil­lion but the Ter­ri­ers are not will­ing to let their goal ma­chine go that eas­ily.

Rhodes, 22, net­ted 37 times last sea­son and Hud­der­s­field have de­cided they want to build their squad up to com­pete in the Cham­pi­onship af­ter pro­mo­tion.

It is also be­lieved that the York­shire club were fu­ri­ous that Rovers boss Steve Kean went pub­lic with their bid.

Black­burn are not be­lieved to be in­ter­ested in up­ping their of­fer – and will look to other tar­gets as they try to re­place the injured Leon Best who is out for six months.

Kean has moved closer to a deal for Galatasaray striker Colin Kazim-Richards.
