Savage Agrees Rovers Deal Extension
Blackburn Rovers midfielder Robbie Savage has agreed a one-year extension to his current Rovers deal that will keep him Ewood Park until 2009.
The former Welsh International still had 18-months to run on his current deal but with long term stability possibly an issue to fend of the advances of Wigan Athletic (rumoured to be interested in a January move for him) he was offered a longer deal, which he has been accepted.
Savage is a much better footballer than he is given credit for; those connected to Rovers know just how important he is and know this, even if others don't but do we care… NO!
"Robbie deserved the extension because he has been playing arguably the best football since he has been at the club and he is a big influence both on the field and off it," said Rovers boss Mark Hughes after the victory over Middlesbrough.
Savage should sign the deal early this week which will be a great start to 2007 for Rovers.
