Manchester City have had a significant bid for Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz rejected by Rovers.

City boss Mark Hughes stepped up his interest in the player he brought to Ewood Park last season but his latest offer was knocked back by his former club.

"We have made an improved bid, a substantial bid for Roque Santa Cruz but it was rejected," said Hughes.

"We made a bid in the region of £12million in the summer and it (the new bid) is significantly higher than that.

"But we still want to bring him to the club if we can but he is Blackburn's player and they don't want to deal at the level we have made a bid at.

"That is their prerogative."
