Blackburn boss Bowyer admits Gestede AND Rhodes could be sold

Blackburn Rovers boss Gary Bowyer admits both his star strikers could be sold this week.

Rudy Gestede and Jordan Rhodes are wanted by Premier League clubs, with the former a target for Crystal Palace and Rhodes being linked with Swansea City.

"It would be a huge blow, of course it would," he said. "Personally, we have to try and keep all our players in this window. But if they were to go I'm sensible enough. I've been brought up the right way to not throw my toys out of the pram and get on with it.

"That is all I can do. If they were to get sold I would go out and find the next one.

"Gareth Bale went to Real Madrid, Ronaldo goes to Real Madrid. Eventually it seems to happen to every player these days. All you do is dust yourself down, wish them all the best and crack on.

"I would obviously put my opinion forward but at the end of the day the owners of the club are there to make the financial decisions."
