The former Manchester City player was rumoured to be a target for manager Steve Bruce.

But a spokesman for the club dismissed the claims saying: "No, the report is not true."

Flitcroft captained the Blackburn side that beat Sheffield Wednesday to reach the Worthington Cup final on Tuesday night but was sent off and now risks missing the final at the Millenium Stadium, Cardiff in February.
