OWNERS Venky’s say they are not looking to sell Blackburn — despite problems getting cash out of India.

The family from Pune have had recent inquiries but would only consider a buyer if Rovers got promoted to the Premier League.

Venky’s took over Blackburn in 2010, five months after the club finished 10th in the top flight.

Two years later, they were relegated down to the Championship.

They spent five seasons in the second tier, before dropping down to League One.

Rovers earned promotion back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

But they have failed to secure a play-off place in the five seasons that have followed.

Three mid-table campaigns were followed by eighth and seventh-place finishes over the last two years – missing out on the play-offs last season by virtue of goal difference.

But this year they are well off the pace, embroiled in a relegation battle.

Under new boss John Eustace, who replaced Jon Dahl Tomasson in February, Blackburn sit 17th in the Championship, three points above the drop zone.

They are on a nine-game winless run, drawing their last three.

On Saturday, they played out a goalless draw with Middlesbrough.
