Blackburn Rovers striker Jason Roberts has insisted that he is not joining Championship side Ipswich Town.

It had been claimed the 33-year-old was set to join his former Wigan manager Paul Jewell at Portman Road.

But Roberts said he has not been in contact with Ipswich and is keen to see out the last year of his Rovers deal.

"I am happy at Blackburn and I am looking forward to next season already," wrote Roberts on social networking site Twitter.

"You are never quite sure where these rumours come from. I can confirm that I am still in Grenada and I have not spoken to anyone from Ipswich or Blackburn!"

The former West Brom and Portsmouth striker has been at Ewood Park since 2006 and signed a one-year extension to his contract in January.

Roberts scored twice in the final three games of the 2010/2011 season as Blackburn avoided relegation from the Premier League.
