Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba has confirmed he wants to leave Ewood Park – and would welcome a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Samba, who joined Rovers for £450,000 in 2007 from Hertha Berlin, is frustrated with the current regime.

“Things have not happened as I was told they would,” said the 27-year-old. “The club is not improving at all.

“I’ve tried to maintain my performance level but I feel it’s time to change. I hope people will understand me.”

Blackburn boss Steve Kean insists the former Congo international is not for sale after confirming the club rejected two bids from Queens Park Rangers last week.


You can hardly blame Christopher Samba for wanting to leave Ewood Park. The Congo international has spent just under five years at Blackburn Rovers and has seen his Ewood Park slump this season and is well aware of the interest in him from many Premier League sides.

Whilst offers from QPR have been made there is also reported interest from sides at the top end of the table such as Tottenham, interest that the 27 year old centre back is keen to pursue, however the former Hertha Berlin man is tied down to a long term contract, said to be running until 2015, and therefore Steve Kean is perfectly within his rights to reject any offers but one wonders if the struggling side will opt to cash in on the defender rather than keeping hold of a player who has made it clear he wants to leave.

Samba has made 184 appearances for the Lancashire side and scored 18 goals.
