Venky's: 'No plans to sell'

Blackburn Rovers director Vineeth Rao has come out to deny reports in Sunday's newspapers that the Venky's consortium was looking to sell the club.

The reports suggested that Venky's, who took over the North-West side in November 2010, had even contacted investment banking firm Goldman Sachs to broker a deal for the club.

Rao, though, says that there is no truth in the suggestions and that the consortium is committed to Blackburn's future.

"It is not true, none of that. We have no plans to sell Blackburn Rovers, none at all. Even if the club got relegated, which is not in our thoughts, we are not planning to sell," Rao told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph on Monday.

Blackburn lie in 19th position in the Premier League with just two fixtures remaining, three points off survival for another season.
