Blackburn boss Steve Kean has held talks with Christopher Samba and told the unsettled defender he will not be sold.

Samba handed in a transfer request this week but Kean said the club are determined that Samba honours his contract and the Congo defender will be allowed to keep the captaincy if he proves his commitment to the club.

Kean said: "I spoke with him (on Wednesday) and he knows he is not for sale. The day before he handed in a transfer request, that has been refused and we won't welcome any more bids and Chris knows the stance of the club. It is never nice when somebody hands in a transfer request but hopefully we can now move on."
