Blackburn defender Christopher Samba has committed his long-term future to the club.

The 25-year-old has signed a new contract at Ewood Park that will take him up to the summer of 2014.

Chairman John Williams said: "I am delighted that we have been able to secure Chris on a new long-term deal, which is an important one for the club."

Samba joined Blackburn after a successful trial, sealing a £400,000 move from Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin in January 2007.
