Blackburn striker Paul Dickov was happy to snub a move to Birmingham.Blackburn striker Paul Dickov has revealed he had no hesitation in snubbing a move to Birmingham.
Blues made a bid for the Scotland international earlier this month as they looked to bolster their attack.
Dickov was happy to reject Birmingham's overtures as he believes the future is bright at Ewood Park under manager Mark Hughes.
"The manager told me about it as soon as Birmingham came in and he asked me if I was happy at the club and I said 'yes, I'm delighted with the way things are going'," he said.
"The offer was then turned down and from my point of view, that's the end of the story.
"I'm happy here, I'm working with a great bunch of lads, I believe in what the manager and the coaching staff are doing at the club and I want to be a part of that.
"I feel the only way is up as long as we continue doing the right things.
"The gaffer, Mark Bowen and Eddie Niedzwiecki are all doing the business and I think the only way is forward for this club."
Meanwhile, Rovers' on-loan striker Jay Bothroyd could be out of action for up to month after picking up a thigh injury in Tuesday's win at Bolton.
