And so why would we sell? Rumour nonsense with nothing to back it up.

Could unsettle the team if he goes too.
Yes, just under the restrictions on fee and salary and total number of established players at that time. But nobody close to a similar replacement. It would be stupid to sell from an FFP point of view - he isn't even one of the legacy high earners.

Also, remember who is out of contract in the summer and guess who won't have contracts renewed - there is no urgency to sell players we only recently bought.

Then read up in the thread ;)

And also, it really doesn't look like he is going anywhere.

Negotiations are continuing between Blackburn and Hull City regarding the transfer of Benin international striker Rudy Gestede, according to Sky Sources.

Hull close understood to be close to agreeing fee, which will be formally lodged to Blackburn. Gestede has 12 goals for Rovers this season
Sky Sports on the ball as usual...

I know this is all speculation,,but thats what gets all football fans through the day. I have to say that at the moment I would rather we sold Rhoades than Gestede. I will stress that ideally niether will leave but if i had the choice then let Rhodes go. we would get more for him and he is probably on higher wages so would at least help slightly with FFP

Or not. It's actually a good thing that rumours with no grounding go out, shows our players are doing well.

And of course they'd be intersted. He's a top scorer in the Championship, and those teams need to score goals to try and secure their PL status. If I was the manager of any team in the bottom third of the PL, I'd be trying to sign players like Gestede and Rhodes. But that wouldn't mean I'd actually get an offer accepted.

I'd say Palace could be in with more of a chance of hitting an asking price, if their chairman want s to throw a bit of money at a new manager.
Hopefully though the asking price will be higher than they're willing to pay, we need the money but we need our top scorer more and I doubt we'd be able to replace him with someone as effective

True! I did put that comment at the time it said we were supposed to be "close" to agreeing a deal I think though! I'd be very disappointed to see either Rudy or Rhodes leave
