Blackburn are in talks with Anzhi Makhachkala over the possible transfer of wantaway defender Christopher Samba, Press Association Sport understands.
The 27-year-old made a transfer request in January but remained at Ewood Park after the winter window closed when a possible move to QPR or Tottenham failed to materialise.
However, the transfer window in Russia does not close until later on Friday and it is understood Anzhi, who recently appointed Guus Hiddink as their coach, are in negotiations to add Samba to their growing list of stars.
