Blackburn reject Man City approach for Santa Cruz

A statement on club's official website read: "A bid came in last night and it was immediately rejected.

"Various Manchester City officials have been advised on a number of occasions that the player would not be for sale.

"We are very disappointed, therefore, that they have continued their interest."

City are currently managed by former Blackburn boss Mark Hughes who brought Santa Cruz to Ewood Park.
