Rovers midfielder could head back to Scandinavia.
Blackburn Rovers midfielder Morten Gamst Pedersen has revealed that he is flattered that Danish giants FC Copenhagen have shown an interest in landing his signature, Sky Sports reports.
The 31-year-old has been told that he is now free to look for a new club after almost ten years with the Lancashire based side as they look to slash the wage bill at Ewood Park.
Manager Gary Bowyer made it clear recently that Pedersen would not feature in his first-team plans this season, and the player admitted to being thrilled and flattered by Copenhagen’s attention.
“I haven’t had a serious contact with FCK, but I have heard about the interest,” Pedersen told Norwegian newspaper BT.
“It is really flattering when a club shows interest in you. In case I get an offer, I will consider it seriously. But I know there are other clubs who are interested in me.
“FC Copenhagen is the biggest club in Scandinavia. They will play in the Champions League and they have reached it because of all the resources they have got.”
Pedersen joined Rovers from Norwegian side Tromso back in 2004 and has since gone on to score 51 goals in 121 appearances for the club.
