Blackburn Rovers winger Morten Gamst Pedersen has sent a plea to Rovers to give him a new contract, and to also ENSURE that we retain our best players.
The Norwegian International hasn't been at his best this season, but he has started finding form again recently so he hopes this will be good enough (and he says he WILL work harder than he has at his own admission) to see his contract extended as he says he is VERY happy at Ewood Park and has no desire to move anywhere else.
Gamst Pedersen told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "It is a good club and I enjoy it here.
"We've got good people around us and a good squad, so I'm pleased to be here.
"There have been talks and we'll have to see what happens. I'll just focus on my football for now and let other people take care of the other things. I'll just have to work hard and I'll deserve what I get."
The secret to Rovers' success according to the 26-year-old is the fact that we have a settled group of players, but in order to get EVEN better and fulfil the promise even further MGP feels it is ESSENTIAL that we keep hold of everyone (as we have done mainly over the years) to keep this going.
He added: "We are building a team and you want to keep players that you have been working a long time with and worked hard with.
"If you are just going to have players for a few years and then they leave, you need replacements again. So it is good to keep the squad together for a long time. We get to know each other better and better.
"You see the big clubs keep their players for a long time, so if we can do the same and build something while we are doing it then we can maybe take another step forward.
"I've been here since 2004. There are a few players who have been here longer than me, but I'm one of the longest servants now. I like it here and I've been doing well, so hopefully there are going to be some more good years to come."
