Blackburn boss Steve Kean reveals that the club rejected two bids for captain Chris Samba last week.

Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean has revealed that two bids have already been turned down by the Lancashire side for captain Chris Samba.

The 27-year-old centre-back hinted today that he intends to leave the Premier League side amid fears of relegation.

"It's difficult to comment [on Samba's claims] because I haven't read the article and I haven't spoken to Chris on it at all, he trained very well [today]," said Kean.

"There was interest [in Samba] from last week. There were two bids last week that were refused and there was a statement put out by the club that he's not for sale and it's a strong statement that we're backing. We'd like to keep him and I'd like to end it at that."

Blackburn hit the headlines today with news of a reported bid for Fulham striker Andy Johnson.
