Blackburn Rovers deny they're planning a firesale this summer to lighten debts.

Venky's representative and Rovers director Vineeth Rao has dismissed the speculation.

Rao told the Lancashire Telegraph: "There are no plans like that there, that is ridiculous.

"There are no plans to sell any more key players, why would there be? Our immediate focus is on staying up in the Premier League.

"We hope Chris Samba will be the last key departure. There are no plans to sell any more key players because we want to improve the squad.

"We want to add to the squad and improve it, not sell the players we have got. We are not planning on selling any more key players."
