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.
