Blackburn Rovers have issued a statement insisting that captain Christopher Samba is not for sale.

The centre-back is hoping to leave the club this month and made his intentions public yesterday by submitting a transfer request.

However, Rovers are adamant that the 27-year-old will not be exiting Ewood Park.

"Blackburn Rovers reiterate that team captain Christopher Samba is not for sale," read a statement on the club's official website.

"The player signed a new contract with the club less than a year ago which runs to June 2015."

Queens Park Rangers, Tottenham Hotspur and Paris Saint-Germain are all reportedly hoping to sign the former Congo international.
