Blackburn boss Allardyce will not release Leicester target Roberts

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is weighing up hanging onto in-form striker Jason Roberts.

Roberts is the loan target for a posse of Championship clubs, including Sheffield United and Leicester City.

But Allardyce, whose team meet Aston Villa today, insisted: "Roberts has just won us two games out of three so I won't be letting him go on loan anywhere.

"Then we'll review the situation in January, when it comes around."
