Robbie Savage has revealed he is concerned about his fitness as he is having problems with his recovery from his broken leg.

The Blackburn Rovers midfielder broke his leg last January against Watford which forced him out of action for six months.

Savage has made a successful return to action this season, but the injury is still niggling him.

The former Leicester man has been forced to limp out of three games this season after taking a knock the same leg and Savage concedes it is a worry for him.

"I had to go off last weekend because I got another whack on the shin. It's happening a lot," Savage told the Sunday Mirror.

Meanwhile, Rovers chairman John Williams has revealed the club are prepared to loan out unsettled striker Maceo Rigters.

Rigters has voiced his concern at his lack of first-team opportunities and his desire to go out on loan to gain some action.

Williams admits the club will discuss the possibility of loaning out the summer signing from NAC Breda.

"That's a discussion for Mark Hughes but it's a possibility. I know Mark is very happy with him, and he's happy at the club, but if it was felt that it was in the best interests of the players' development then we may consider it.

Discussions

"We had numerous discussions about whether we should let Paul Gallagher go out on loan and we felt that it was, at least until January.

"It's just about grabbing opportunities and it's a consequence of having a good squad but also not having many injuries."
