Venky's have denied they are planning to sell Blackburn Rovers.

Steve Kean's side are staring relegation in the face after a dismal season but the Indian poultry giants insist they will not quit the club should they go down.

Investment bankers Goldman Sachs were reported to have been instructed to broker a deal with potential buyers but Rovers director Vineeth Rao dismissed the claims.

'It is not true, none of that. We have no plans to sell Blackburn Rovers, none at all,' Rao told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph.

'Even if the club got relegated, which is not in our thoughts, we are not planning to sell.'

Blackburn's season hit a new low on Sunday when they were beaten 2-0 at Tottenham without managing a single shot on or off target.

Rovers sit 19th in the Premier League table, three points from safety with just two games to go this term.
