Blackburn striker Jordan Rhodes has signed a two-year contract extension ruling out the chance of him joining West Ham or QPR this summer.

The London pair, along with Newcastle and Southampton were keen on the £10million-rated star but will now be looking elsewhere.

The 24-year-old, who scored 25 goals last season for the Ewood Park outfit, has committed his future to Rovers for the next five years by extending his current deal until the summer of 2019.

“I’m delighted, I’m very happy,” the striker told Rovers Player. “It is a fantastic football club and I’m very lucky to be here.

“I enjoy coming in every day and to have an extension of two more years on top of my current contract is a real bonus.

“I was delighted to sign it, it is a club I enjoy playing for. The fans have been great ever since I’ve come in the place and I’ve just thoroughly enjoyed it so I’m delighted to be here.”

Rhodes has scored more than 50 goals and broken into the Scotland squad in the two campaigns since arriving from Huddersfield for a club-record fee of £8million.
