Several clubs are waiting on Jordan Rhodes to sign for Middlesbrough so that they can conduct some on their own transfer business today, according to The Sun.
Rhodes is nearing a £9 million move to the Championship promotion favourites, with another £4 million in add-ons should Middlesbrough go up to the Premier League and avoid relegation.
Middlesbrough’s imminent signing of Rhodes will have a domino effect on a host of other deals, according to the report.
Huddersfield will get the remaining £1 million they are owed from Blackburn for Rhodes, along with £200,000 from the £9 million that Blackburn are getting for selling Rhodes, due to a sell-on clause. The Terriers will also get another £400,000 should Middlesbrough get promoted and then avoid relegation.
Ipswich will also profit from the deal, getting 10% of whatever Huddersfield Town get from the deal due to a sell-on clause included when the club sold the striker to Huddersfield.
It is believed that Middlesbrough will only let striker Kike complete his £2.5 million transfer to Wolverhampton Wanderers if Rhodes signs, so Wolves will be another club hoping that the deal goes through before the 11pm deadline.
It is also understood that Wolves will then sell their winger Rajiv van la Parra to Huddersfield for a fee of around £1 million, but only if Huddersfield get the money to pay for him from the Rhodes deal.
