Savage shuns interest from Wigan

Robbie Savage has revealed he has no intention of quitting Blackburn for Wigan.

Savage has been consistently linked with a move to the Latics in the past week, but the former Wales international midfielder is happy at Ewood Park.

Despite Craig Bellamy leaving Blackburn for Liverpool for £6.5million earlier this summer, the 31-year-old will not be following his close friend out of the club.

'I am more than happy at Blackburn,' Savage told The Sun. 'I knew when I left Birmingham this was the right club for me and nothing has changed.

'It was very flattering for me they showed an interest, but there's a UEFA Cup season ahead and I'm very much looking forward to it.'

Another Blackburn star being chased by other clubs is full-back Lucas Neill, and although the Australia international insists - like Savage - he is happy at Rovers, at present his future is clouded.

Neill has just a year remaining on his current contract, resulting in inevitable speculation, although he has yet to speak to manager Mark Hughes and chairman John Williams.

'To be honest, I'm happy at Blackburn,' said Neill in the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. 'I've a nice home near Bolton, and the club finished sixth last season, which got us into the UEFA Cup, which is exciting.

'But, like any professional footballer, I'm keeping my options open. There have been a lot of rumours flying around about my future, but I have yet to speak to my Blackburn manager and the club's chairman.

'I still feel that I am a Blackburn player, but I am very flattered to have been noticed by quite reputable clubs.'
