Blackburn have rejected an initial bid from Hull for prolific striker Jordan Rhodes.

Rovers manager Gary Bowyer revealed at his press conference on Thursday afternoon that the Tigers had lodged an enquiry for Rhodes, who has scored 53 goals in 99 games for the East Lancashire outfit, and that the offer would be passed on to the club's owners.

And the Sky Bet Championship club have since confirmed to Press Association Sport that Hull's approach has been turned down.

Blackburn manager Gary Bowyer says Hull have made a bid for prolific striker Jordan Rhodes.

The 24-year-old Scotland international, who scored 25 goals for Rovers in the Sky Bet Championship last season, has been targeted by Tigers boss Steve Bruce to replace Shane Long following his recent move to Southampton.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference on Thursday lunchtime, Bowyer said: "There has been an enquiry which has been taken to the board and the owners and that's as much as I know."

Rhodes is expected to be involved in Rovers' clash with Bournemouth on Saturday.

Snodgrass set for six months out

Hull midfielder Robert Snodgrass has been ruled out for six months with a dislocated kneecap.

Tigers manager Steve Bruce revealed the extent of the injury to Snodgrass ahead of the club's Europa League qualifier against Lokeren in Belgium on Thursday, a club spokesman confirmed.

And it could get worse for Snodgrass who is due to undergo scans to investigate possible ligament damage.

Hull want three more

Hull boss Steve Bruce is preparing to reinvest the proceeds from this week's sale of striker Shane Long on up to three new players before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month.

We thought the offer that came in was too good too turn down. We will reinvest the money into the squad and I think the squad will be better for it.

I would still like at least another three players to come through the doors and with the money we have got for Shane that allows me to do that, so we will be active over the next few weeks.
