Neil Adams is a fan of Jordan Rhodes – but there are no current moves to bring him to City.

Speculation started earlier in the week linking City with a move for the Blackburn hit man – although sources in Lancashire suggest it would take £10m as a minimum to sign the 24-year-old prolific forward, who cost his current club £8m two years ago.

“I’ve seen it, I’ve seen all the rumours,” said the Norwich manager. “I think they’ve put two and two together and come up with 25. Obviously Joe Royle had him as a young player (at Ipswich), and I played with his dad Andy Rhodes. That’s where the links are. We’ve made no offer for Jordan Rhodes – fantastic player, don’t get me wrong. Scores goals for fun, guarantees goals. But there’s been no offer.”

So maybe not Rhodes – but Adams expects his new football consultant to help him out with his summer recruitment task.

“It’s one of his many attributes and one of the reasons I got him in here,” said Adams of Royle.

“He won’t be out there coaching every day. It’ll be more player recruitment. But he will be out there from time to time, he will be watching games and he is someone who will be a really big asset for us.”

  • 1961 tractorboy you really are living in the past at least we have the guts to come out and say that we have been rubbish for most of the CH reign. Whereas you have been total cr**p for years and the run down council ground is too big for you. Hey!! I have just hit on the idea that you are Marcus Evans.
