Blackburn manager Steve Kean is confident star defender Chris Samba will remain at Ewood Park, and denies that there have been any offers for the 27-year-old.
Despite Arsenal and Tottenham keen to shore up their defence with the solid Congolese international, Samba hasn't budged from Blackburn.
Kean has already lost a crucial defender after Phil Jones was sold to Manchester United for around £16 million, and the Rovers manager is more determined than ever to hold on to Samba.
The 43-year-old manager pointed out: "Chris is only a few months into a five-year contract. There have been rumours every single week but we have not had any bids at all, not one, and long may that continue.
“We know it's life without Phil, and if you lose somebody at the last minute it can be very difficult.
"We hope that won't happen, we hope that's the only centre-half we have lost this season and that the phone doesn't ring and that Chris is happy with us.
"We made him a contract offer that was not adequate for what he was after. There has been a little bit of movement on both sides so it's not dead yet."
