Blackburn Rovers have warned Arsenal off their star winger Morten Gamst Pedersen.

Gunners chief Arsene Wenger is reported to be preparing a bid for the Norwegian attacker.

But Rovers boss Mark Hughes said: "He isn't going anywhere and particularly not for £8m considering the price of players now."

Blackburn face Arsenal on Sunday and Sparky added: "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."
