Jason Roberts has held talks about his future with Blackburn boss Mark Hughes and has decided that Rovers is the best place for him to be.
Roberts' future has been the subject of speculation with the player believed to be keen on a move to London for personal reasons.
Blackburn turned down a bid from Fulham for the powerful forward earlier this month as Hughes has always expressed his desire to keep hold of the Grenada powerhouse.
Roberts admitted he spoke to the club about his future and he says he is content to pledge his future to Blackburn.
Speaking to Sky Sports...
'I spoke to the club about things when the bid came in from Fulham,' Roberts told The Sun. 'I have family in London and the Jason Roberts Foundation charity is based there.
'But there's no rush for me. I'm happy here.
'The manager knows that and I'll carry on working hard and doing my best for Rovers.'
Jason also clarified that his best friend and fellow strike partner Benni McCarthy will not be leaving either.
'There are no problems for Benni. He has said he wants to play in the Champions League again. But don't we all want to play in that competition?
'Benni is a true professional and focused on doing as well as he can for Rovers.
'He has a lot of respect for the people here and he'll show that when he's out on the pitch. He'll carry on working hard.'
Well I for one am pleased but also suprised this statement has been issued. Jason is very honest but most importantly put the record straight. He is going to be a Rovers player and spearhead another push for Europe.
And I can think of one person called 'Mikey' who is delighted... and maybe Hughes Da Man as well.
