Martin Olsson insists he has no problem staying with Blackburn Rovers.

The Sweden fullback was priced out of moves to West Ham United and Stoke City last month.

"I thought I would leave in January. But apparently Blackburn did not want to let me go and I can only respect that. I like the club so it's no problem," Olsson told Expressen.

"I just want to play football. The club said they did not want to let me go now and I can respect that, we'll see this summer."
