Christopher Samba has admitted he wants to quit Blackburn, saying: "It's time for a change."

Rovers skipper Samba has been heavily linked with moves to Tottenham and QPR, who have both reportedly lodged bids in the region of £7million for the 27-year-old. French-born Congo defender Samba has been at Ewood Park for almost five years and insisted he had always put the club's interests before his own in that time.

But he suggested the Venky's regime had failed to take them forward, telling L'Equipe: "Lately, mentally, it has been difficult. I tried to maintain my level of performance but I sense that it is time for a change. The club doesn't evolve at all. I'm resigned."
