Rovers in pole for Rhodes

Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean believes he can beat Premier League sides Fulham and West Ham United to the signing of Huddersfield goal-machine Jordan Rhodes.

• Rovers friendly cancelled

Kean, who is rebuilding his squad after relegation to the Championship in May, told ESPN that Rovers have lodged an official bid for Rhodes.

Kean said: "I can confirm that we have a bid in for Rhodes, and are also interested in other players."

ESPN believes one of those players to be Colin Kazim-Richards, a player who began his career in England most notably with Brighton and Sheffield United but has most recently been at Fenerbahce, Toulouse, Galatasaray and Olympiakos.

Turkey international Kazim-Richards, 25, is on trial at Blackburn and has impressed enough to be considered for a deal.

Indian owners Venky's have backed Kean with a £4 million bid for the 22-year-old Rhodes, with an additional £2 million bonus payment if Rovers are promoted back to the Premier League at the first attempt.

Rhodes, who scored 37 goals as Huddersfield were promoted from League One via the play-offs last season, is ready to sign a £35,000-a-week deal which will contain a release clause if Blackburn fail to make it back to the Premier League.

Blackburn's summer spending spree includes Danny Murphy, Nuno Gomes, Dickson Etuhu and Leon Best, although Best is now out for several months with a knee injury.
