Blackburn Rovers manager Steve Kean maintains that defender Chris Samba is not for sale.

The Congolese international was left out of Rovers' win over Fulham at Ewood Park last weekend, leading to reports he was set to leave the club.

The likes of Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Samba, while Paris St Germain are also unlikely suitors.

But Kean said: "He's not for sale, it's as simple as that.

"He'll be back in again and hopefully ready for Everton."

Samba triggered speculation he was set to leave the Premier League strugglers when claiming it was time for a change in his career.

"Things have not happened as I was told they would," said the 27-year-old. "The club is not improving at all.

"I've tried to maintain my performance level but I feel it's time to change. I hope people will understand me.''

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed his interest in Samba, while QPR boss Mark Hughes has also confirmed he's made a bid for the former Hertha Berlin man.

After missing out on Gary Cahill, Samba appears to be Tottenham's No.1 defensive target.
