Jordan Rhodes

Sheffield Weds

Description

Jordan Luke Rhodes (born 5 February 1990) is a professional footballer who plays as a striker for Sheffield Wednesday and the Scotland national team. He started his career at Ipswich Town and after loan spells at Oxford United, Rochdale and Brentford he joined Huddersfield Town. In the 2011–12 season, he was the top scorer in England with 36 league goals, breaking Huddersfield's club record for most league goals scored in a season. In August 2012, he became English football's most expensive player outside the top flight when he joined Blackburn Rovers for £8,000,000, equalling Blackburn's record transfer fee. Born in England, Rhodes opted to play for Scotland, for whom he had become eligible through school attendance while his father Andy Rhodes played as a goalkeeper for Scottish football clubs. Rhodes has represented Scotland at both U-21 level and as a full international. Rhodes was born in Oldham, Greater Manchester, while his father, English footballer Andy Rhodes, was playing for Oldham Athletic. Rhodes senior moved to Scotland later that year when he joined Dunfermline Athletic and stayed in Scotland until 1998 also playing for St Johnstone and Airdrieonians. There were breaks in the time Andy Rhodes spent playing in Scotland when he had loan spells at Bolton Wanderers and Scarborough. Thus Jordan Rhodes spent much of his childhood living and being schooled in Scotland. Initially he followed in his father's footsteps and played as a goalkeeper as a youngster. Andy Rhodes joined Ipswich Town as a coach in 2004. Jordan attended Kesgrave High School in Ipswich through his secondary school years where he was scouted and recruited by Ipswich Town in 2004.

Depends on the fee they are prepared to pay. I recall someone explained that clubs are required to pay up players contracts, unless the player submits a transfer request. 

 

If we estimate Rhodes is on c£30k per week, we'd need around £600-700k just to cover that liability.

In usual terms this would be a good move.

 

But if he keeps them up at our expense it’s going to cost us the same amount as his transfer fee all over again...

I don't think if we sell him to another club we have to pay up his contract, we pay him until he leaves them the other club pay him.

 

Leaving on a free we could save close to a million between now and the end of the season.

I imagine he'll score goals. 

 

 

Based on what?

 

He hasn't scored consistently for years.

One is at liberty to enquire if a taxi may be available to provide secure and safe transportation of a former valued member of our squad.

 

Would anyone care to provide an escort to keep Mr Rhodes company for his long and weary journey?

Got to be top 3 worst signing since 1867

 

Think worst signings in my time taking into account the money paid and what they contributed would say Rhodes, De Bilde, Franny Jeffers and Alem Abdi.

Was so happy when we got him, but it hasn't worked for whatever reason. 

 

If we can save some money on him it's a no brainer, no matter who he goes to. We have to make cut backs so can't be picky about where he goes. 

 

Looked alright in the first two games of the season, then dropped and barely seen since, so weird.
