Doncaster turn down �2.8 million bid for Billy Sharp
DONCASTER Rovers have turned down a new bid for one-time Ipswich Town target Billy Sharp.
Reports today have suggested an unnamed Championship club have bid �2.8 million for the forward – a month after Ipswich boss Paul Jewell saw his bid publicly rejected.
The Blues offered �2.3 million for Sharp within a week of last season ending before turning their attention, successfully, to Michael Chopra.
Southampton are one club said to be interested in Sharp although the man who has scored 31 goals in 66 games for Rovers would surely have many suitors in the Championship.
The signings of Chopra and Nathan Ellington would likely rule Ipswich out of the running although one school of thought would be that Jewell might be tempted to increase his offer for Sharp if Connor Wickham was sold to a Premier League side.

But, perhaps with one eye on what the likes of Danny Graham and Steve Morison have been sold for, it seems as if Doncaster are holding out for a minimum of �3 million.
