Blackburn captain Christopher Samba has handed in a transfer request, his management company have confirmed.

Samba was last week quoted in L'Equipe saying that his club, who are struggling near the bottom of the Barclays Premier League, "doesn't evolve at all'', that "things have not gone as I was told'' and that he felt it was "time for a change''.

The defender has been linked with Tottenham and QPR, and Rovers manager Steve Kean revealed on Friday that two bids had been turned down for the player. The Scot also stressed that Samba was not for sale, but the 27-year-old has now made it clear that he wants to leave Ewood Park.
