Rovers to start at £3m for Hoilett

BLACKBURN Rovers will receive an initial fee of £3m for Junior Hoilett after they finally agreed a deal with QPR for the Canadian.

Hoilett joined QPR this summer following the expiry of his contract at Ewood Park, but Rovers were still entitled to a fee because he was under the age of 24.

The two clubs were initially unable to agree a price and, had negotiations failed, a fee would have been set by the Professional Football Compensation Committee.

Steve Kean had hoped to secure close to the £6m Chelsea paid Manchester City for Daniel Sturridge in 2009 under similar circumstances, but talks between the two clubs have now seen Rovers accept a lesser fee.

QPR will pay an initial price of £3m, rising to £4m depending on appearances.

Rovers will also be entitled to a percentage of any profit QPR make on Hoilett should they sell him in the future.

A boycott is being organised for the Wolves game, with an ad for the LT being prepared right now. All fans have the right to do what they choose but a show of solidarity by season ticket holders by their non-attendance, for just this single match, will send a clear message to Venky's regarding the financial consequences of keeping Kean in charge.

Boycott on the 6th of October.
