Robbie Savage has signed an exclusive three-year deal with BT Sport. The ex-professional footballer has previously hosted a regular show with the broadcaster and worked as a pundit.

"Delighted to have signed exclusively for @btsport for 3 years to work on champs league co comm, premier league, fa cup and Europe league!" he tweeted.

Savage retired from professional football in 2011. Since then, he has held court as a pundit on Match of the Day and presented on BBC Radio 5 Live.

Meanwhile, Gary Lineker has signed to present football for five more years with the BBC.

It was rumoured he would sign a non-exclusive contract, and that he would join BT Sport to present its Champions League coverage on the side. The BBC hasn't revealed whether his contract is exclusive.

"I'm thrilled that my relationship with the BBC has been renewed and that I will continue to present 'Match of the Day', FA Cup, major football tournaments and 'Sports Personality of the Year," Lineker said.

"I'm already looking forward to getting the 2015-16 season underway."

Jake Humprhey has also renewed his contract with BT Sport. The four-year deal will see him expand his role.

BT is rumoured to be holding a press conference tomorrow to reveal its full line-up of pundits, so we should know then whether Lineker has jumped aboard.
