Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Mido has ruled out a move to Blackburn Rovers.
Blackburn are believed to have tabled a bid for the Roma star, as they look to fill the void left by the departure of Craig Bellamy.
Mido returned to Roma earlier this summer after Spurs decided against signing the Egyptian international.
The 23-year-old impressed during his stay at White Hart Lane and his performances did not go unnoticed with Rovers boss Mark Hughes.
Roma are thought to be willing to sell Mido, but the player insists he has no interest in moving to Ewood Park.
"I am not interested in Blackburn," said Mido.
"I want to remain at Roma and prove that I can help this team achieve success."
