DRFC Sharp unlikely to join Rovers

DRFC Sharp unlikely to join Rovers

Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O`Driscoll admits that it is unlikely that on loan striker Billy Sharp will still be at Rovers at the start of next season.

Speaking on Rovers Player, O`Driscoll said, 'Of course I would like to keep him but someone needs to give me a million quid. He had four or five games when he went without a goal and we said to him not to get frustrated because he is still a big influence for us. I'm pleased for him and all the goals he has scored for us have been crucial.'

Sharp is on a season long loan from Sheffield United and scored his twelfth goal of the season on Saturday in the 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest.

The former Scunthorpe United striker as quickly become a fans favourite at the Keepmoat with his hard working displays and goals and they will be hoping that the funds can be raised to lure Sharp away from Bramall Lane.

The 24 year old joined the Blades for around £2 million in 2007 after scoring 53 goals in 82 games for Scunthorpe United.

He struggled to find the same form at Bramall Lane scoring eight goals in fifty-one games.

After dropping down the pecking order, he jumped at the chance to join Rovers on a season long loan with the deal being completed in the dying minutes of the transfer window back in August.

Sharp as looked back to his best at Rovers and scored in six consecutive games during November and December, the first player to achieve the feat in over 30 years for the club.

The run of form helped him earn the PFA Championship Fans Player of the Month for December, the first Rovers player to win the award.

Sharp suffered a run of six games without a goal but as now scored in two of his last three, making it twelve goals in twenty-five appearances for Rovers.

The life long Sheffield United fan will be hoping to keep the run going when Rovers travel to Sheffield Wednesday in midweek.

Sharp scored the only goal of the game when the two sides met at the Keepmoat in December.

I know Rovers have a very tight budget but this player could be the difference between relegation to League One and playing in the championship.

I would love to see Rovers sign him but I think the form he's shown this season will have clubs that can afford a lot more than we can will come in for him and price us out of it.
