Blackburn Rovers Reject £18.5 Million Bid From Premier League Club

Crystal Palace are in talks to sign Blackburn midfielder Adam Wharton - with an initial offer rejected by the club.

The 19-year-old became an England U20 international earlier this season.

The bid was understood to have been a substantial offer in the region of £18m.

Talks are continuing and Palace are considering whether to follow up with another offer.

Blackburn manager Jon Dahl Tomasson said on Wharton: "There's been an offer and the club has said no, which I like.

"He’s a great lad, I remember last year sitting at home with his parents drinking tea to discuss his development. 

Now he’s a first-team player and I believe he’ll be an England player."
