Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz has shrugged off interest from Tottenham and Arsenal.

"Many said my transfer to a bigger club was impending, but I am used to this now and my attention is focused on Blackburn," Santa Cruz told Paraguay's Channel 5.

"I am happy for the great season that I had, the important goals I scored for a small club.

"Of course I am motivated by the interest of other clubs but I repeat, if I do not leave the plan is to have a better season with Blackburn."
