Rovers skipper Christopher Samba refuses to rule out a move to a Champions League side.

Christopher Samba has refused to rule out a move from Blackburn Rovers because he wants to play Champions League football.

The 27-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal, conceded that he would be interested in talking to a club of the Gunners’ calibre.

"A player who has no ambition to play at a higher level has made a mistake and chosen the wrong sport,” he told The Sun.

"I don't know what is happening with Arsenal because I am not dealing with it and it's not my problem.

"At the minute I am still at Blackburn but it would be a big lie if I told you 'everything is good and I don't want to play in the Champions League'.

"I don't know what the board and the manager at Blackburn are planning or what provisions they have made for signing new players.

"It is difficult for me at the moment because I'm just waiting to see what happens and concentrating on my preparation for the new season."
