    Rovers have announced that the Morten Gamst Pedersen contract saga is finally over, with the midfielder signing a new 4-year deal which will keep him at the club until 2014.
    Chairman John Williams told the club's official website (www.rovers.co.uk) he was delighted that Morten had signed a new deal. Sam Allardyce, who is on holiday, will be delighted, as he sees Pedersen as a key member of the squad. John Williams also confirmed that finding a striker was now the "summer priority".
    Pedersen has made 240 appearances for Rovers, scoring 38 goals.

    Sam Allardyce has become increasingly frustrated by the continuing saga involving Morten Gamst Pedersen and signing a new contract. He has now issued the player with an ultimatum. Speaking to the press, Sam said: "I'm sick of it. Speak to the chairman. It's his baby, not mine. He deals with the finances. To be honest, they'll sort it out between them, and if he makes a decision, then I'll find out. Hopefully it will be the right decision, but we're going to need one — and in the next few days — because it can't keep lingering on and on and on."
    Asked whether he felt that Morten would be at the club next season, Allardyce simply said: "No".

    Reports in the national media are linking Newcastle with a £1 million move for Rovers striker Jason Roberts. Last week Roberts expressed dissatisfaction at not getting regular first team football at Rovers this season.
    In other news Morten Gamst Pedersen's agent has told the Lancashire Telegraph that his client is happy at Ewood Park but would not be drawn on whether he would sign a new contract. Rovers are hoping to get a decision from Morten ahead of the Arsenal game.
