Blackburn have warned interested clubs off Morten Gamst Pedersen.Blackburn chairman John Williams has warned interested clubs that Norway international Morten Gamst Pedersen is not for sale.
The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to Tottenham, but Williams insists they have not received any offers and would not consider selling in any case.
"We have no plans to sell Morten, either to Tottenham or any other club," said Williams.
"He is an important part of our side and will stay with us. We haven't had any official enquiry from Tottenham or anybody else."
Blackburn defender Aaron Mokoena, meanwhile, has pulled out of South Africa's squad for the African Cup of Nations.
He is unhappy with coach Ted Dumitru, after being replaced as captain.
"The basis of trust between me and the coach has been irreparably damaged and I will not be available for selection as long as he is in charge," said Mokoena.
