Ings will have re sale value being 4 years younger than Rodriguez, but Jay Rod's scoring record is slightly better than Ings and Ings has barely played any football in the last 2 or 3 years.

Shows we are justified in asking for 20 million.
We may feel we are justified asking for that much , but anyone who actually pays that much is the subject of daylight robbery

Watching him today he didn’t look like a player who wanted to be there personally ...

He wasn’t worth 16p today, awful. Expected far more from him.

He was awful. So was Robson Kanu. We'd have been better off with Robson Green up front.

I'd agree with the fact that his performance was poor. But, is that really his position, in the 'hole' behind the striker? He was coming as deep as Brunt for the ball at times.

If he’s going to play like that I’d take the £16m for him. If he doesn’t want to be here then sell. Darren Moore talks about the ethos he wants to build at the club, that ethos needs to include players who want to be here.

He was poor today but anyone that has to partner robson  kanu has my sympathy. Robson kanu is up there with the worst players I’ve ever seen put the shirt on. He makes fortune look like Ronaldo

We've missed the boat there I'm afraid, he's signed for Chesterfield this week in the National League!  :)

I think Rodriguez's performance yesterday had more to do with being played in a position that is nowhere near his best and the fact that endless balls were being pumped into the box where he had no chance of getting to any of them due to the height of the Bolton defenders. The fact he was willing to go deep to get the ball showed to me that he was trying to have an impact on the game.

He should be played at the head of a 3-1. His most effective games for us have been when he has been the central striker, such as at Liverpool in the cup and Arsenal away in the league (even though we lost 2-0)

He's not a number 10, he's a striker and should be played there. I don't care how last minute pulling Rondon out of the squad was, putting HRK up top with J Rod in behind him should never have been an option. Quick change of Jimmy in for Rondon and J Rod in his natural position and we would have had a chance of winning the game.

Burnley face missing out on Jay Rodriguez, after having a £16m offer rejected. I believe three other Premier League clubs are interested, ahead of Thursday's 5 p.m. deadline

Someone will offer close to what we value him at, that offer will more than likely come to us on transfer deadline day, we will see if the club accept that and take the money or decline it and keep JRod until Jan at least.

I can't see him going anywhere personally. If gives us to much of a job to do in the final week.

It's not like the board have history of selling our strikers in a window last minute without replacement is it?

Cheap, short term signings you could say but the Albion board generally over history have shown they put money first.

Assuming Rondon is gone, that leaves us with J-Rod and HRK.  I'd say we need two strikers to come in, preferably at least one of them being first choice, preferably two.  I don't mind keeping HRK as squad filler if we have to.

I can totally see us selling Rondon in the next day or two, then J-Rod at the close of window and bringing in Gayle on loan and some kid from League 2.
