Laws: I want Blake to stay

Published Add your comment

Burnley boss Brian Laws has revealed that the door remains open for fans favourite Robbie Blake to stay at the club.

The 34-year-old attacking midfielder rejected the offer of a new 12-month contract with the option of another year based on appearances as he wanted to secure a straight two-year deal. Yet Laws remains keen to keep Blake at Turf Moor and said the original terms are still available to him.

Laws told the club's official website: "I know Robbie Blake is a huge favourite with supporters. It has already been clearly stressed that the offer is still on the table and I hope that Robbie is still thinking about it. We want Robbie at Burnley Football Club.

He added: "He is a crowd favourite. I don't think he will get that anywhere else and we know what he can give us.

"At the moment it's a bit of a stalemate but there's still plenty of time and we will give him that time."
