Gamst is Staying!
ROVERS chairman John Williams has taken time out from being one of the best chairmen in the league to clarify that Morten Gamst Pedersen will not be moving from Ewood Park this summer.
The man who doesn't score tap ins has been the subject of transfer speculation every transfer window since his £1.5m switch to Ewood Park from Tromso in August 2004. Some of which was utterly banal media speculation, particularly from the Mirror who are very Anti-Rovers.
The Lancashire Telegraph reported on Saturday that Pedersen's agent, Rune Hauge, had claimed that the Premiership's Big 4 and world famous 'MEGA CLUB' Tottenham Hotspur were lining up a move for the Norwegian international.
Hauge claimed that he had been in contact with the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham over his client. The only words we've actually heard from Gamst so far is that he happy at Ewood and is determined to help press the club on.
But Mr Williams has shot down any interest in the Rovers star, who has scored 26 goals in 118 games in the famous blue and white halves, saying Rovers were looking to strengthen their squad not lose their best players.
He said: 'I've told Mark Hughes that he doesn't need to sell anyone this summer. Morten has three years on his contract at Ewood Park. It's as simple as that.'
* this sounds to me like Morten's agent fancies a large slice of commission for Gamst either a) signing a new contract or b) moving to a new club.
Anything Morten has stated so far is that he is happy, I am more than confident Gamst will be playing for the Blue and White barmy army next year.... and that`s a good thing.
