SH­EFFIELD Wed­nes­day boss Car­los Car­val­hal has in­sisted he won’t make a big money bid for Scot­land striker Jor­dan Rhodes.

Rhodes has been linked with Wed­nes­day af­ter strug­gling to get into the side at Mid­dles­brough this sea­son.

But Car­val­hal has made it clear Wed­nes­day won’t put their fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity in dan­ger to chase a big­money deal.

He said: “We are not dream­ing of what will hap­pen in the fu­ture. I live in the re­al­ity and the re­al­ity is I am happy with the play­ers. We have more than the ca­pac­ity to score goals and win games.

“I read on so­cial me­dia about why we don’t take this or that player. But we can­not put the club in an em­bargo. We have fi­nan­cial fair play and it’s im­por­tant.

“Some clubs maybe will deal with prob­lems now or at the end of the sea­son. But we are try­ing to do things in the proper way.

“Some­times I read things that make me think we have dis­cov­ered a mine of gold be­cause they are talk­ing about these (big money) play­ers.”
