Pedersen would sign new deal under Blackburn boss Allardyce

Blackburn midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen is willing to extend his stay at Blackburn knowing that Sam Allardyce is now in charge. Speculation suggested Pedersen faced an uncertain future at Ewood Park under former boss Paul Ince, with the Norwegian terminating contract discussions in December as he was not guaranteed first-team opportunities.

When asked if he would sign a new contract should one be offered, Pedersen told Nordlys: "Of course. I am enjoying myself and Blackburn is a nice club.

"There has never been any trouble and they have always been supportive. But I haven't received a new offer, yet.

"I would like to continue to play under Sam Allardyce. He is a very good manager."

Referring to contract negotiations during Ince's tenure, Pedersen added: "I said no. The contract talks were stopped.

"I ended up in the stands for four or five matches after having played regularly for several years.

"The situation was not ideal for me. The offer was good financially, but money is not everything, I want to play."
