Blackburn manager reveals two bids for Christopher Samba

Christopher Samba handed in a transfer request at Ewood Park at the beginning of the week, with the German expressing his desire to leave Blackburn in January

However, if the central defender is looking to play for a club at the right end of the Premier League, he could be misguided with Steve Kean revealing that Queens Park Rangers are the only club that have lodged a bid for the 27-year-old.

Samba is under contract at Ewood Park until 2015 and the rumours suggest that Tottenham Hotspur and PSG are interested in signing the player, although Mark Hughes is the only manager to have expressed an official interest.

Kean told Sky Sports News: “The statement reads for itself (where Blackburn state the player is not for sale). We want to keep Chris. Obviously we know there’s bids out there for him but it’s a mark of what we’re trying to do that we’ve refused the bids and that’s where we are.

“We’ve only had two bids from one club. There’s not been any other clubs in contact. Chris is under contract and we’ve been in dialogue with Chris. We want him to stay at the club and that’s what we’ll be fighting to do.”
