Blackburn want £18M buyout clause in Hoilett deal

Blackburn Rovers want to include an £18 million buyout in Junior Hoilett's new contract.

Rovers' Indian owners are close to talking the Canadian starlet into agreeing a pay rise, says the People.

The only stumbling block is the valuation to be placed on him.

Hoilett, 21, is prepared to sign up for a £15m release clause. But Venky's believe he might be worth even more than centre-half Phil Jones, who joined United for £16m plus extras in June.
