Blackburn boss Mark Hughes has warned Arsenal off any move for Morten Gamst Pedersen.

Recent reports have suggested Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is pondering a move for the Norwegian winger.

However, Hughes insists Gamst Pedersen is going nowhere and believes the Arsenal talk is just speculation

"He isn't going anywhere and particularly not for £8m considering the price of players now," Hughes told the Sun.

"We've heard nothing from Arsenal and, in the week leading up to the game, possibly someone has been a little bit naughty.

"It isn't based on any fact. We're not interested in selling Pedersen."

Pedersen has also rejected the rumours and he expects to stay at Ewood Park.

"There are several clubs who have been interested," Gamst Pedersen told VG.

"It's been back and forth. But the manager has clealy declared that I am not for sale."
