Interest in Rudy Gestede has been high this transfer market, with Hull City and Crystal Palace being the two most notable clubs to make bids for the player. The major issue, however, has been the high valuation that the Blackburn Rovers board have put on the French-born Benin international. Moves from both Premier League sides have broken down over this, despite Gestede being Alan Pardew’s priority when he took over at Selhurst Park.
Now, however, The Sun believe that Gestede could be available at a cut price of £5 million on deadline day, almost half the value of his reported price tag earlier in the window. Whether it is now too late for anyone to return for the player, if these reports are accurate, will emerge during the course of the day.
