Price for Rhodes is too high, says QPR boss

QPR will move for Jordan Rhodes if Blackburn lower their asking price for the striker.

Rangers are keen to sign at least one forward during this month’s transfer window and manager Harry Redknapp believes Rhodes, who has scored 16 goals this season, would make a major impact at Loftus Road.

But Rovers are keen to at least recoup the £8m they spent when they signed the 23-year-old from Huddersfield Town in 2012.

And Redknapp said: “It’s too expensive. He’s a good player but I don’t think they’ll lower the price.

“They want their money back – they want their £8m or £9m for him. Every week he scores. He’s amazing.”

Rhodes netted 87 goals in 149 matches for Huddersfield and had since scored 43 goals in 69 appearances for Blackburn.

The Oldham-born Scotland international had a spell on loan in west London in 2009 when he played 14 times for Brentford, scoring seven times.
