Blackburn manager Sam Allardyce has ruled out a summer departure for midfielder Brett Emerton.
Like Rovers team-mate Vince Grella, the Emerton has been linked with a move to Galatasaray where fellow Australia internationals Harry Kewell and Lucas Neill play their club football.
But Allardyce is expecting big things from the 31-year-old, who was sidelined for nine months of last season with an injury, and has no plans to let him go.
He said: “It’s been frustrating for Brett, but I think this season is going to be the one where he will show his full potential again.
“I do think the trauma of an injury that big at his age shocked him. But it hasn’t from a physical point of view as he’s never been so fit.
“Hopefully, those injuries are put to one side now.”
