Getafe have dismissed Blackburn Rovers interest in striker Roberto Soldado.

Soldado has been made aware of the interest from England, with initial contact believed to have already been made.

However, the 24-year-old has told Getafe that he is prepared to stay until at least the end of the season, laying any reports of an imminent exit to rest.

"The issue depended on the views of the players and he has decided to remain at the club," said president Angel Torres.

"This is good news for us because the kid is developing quickly and has had a sensational season so far."

Soldado is also said to have spurned the opportunity to join ambitious Russian outfit Rubin Kazan, who have also enquired as to his availability.
