King Kong Of The Congo Calm Over His Future

King Kong Of The Congo Calm Over His Future

Christopher Samba is not being drawn into taking the bait to discuss his future at Rovers but hardly did much to quash the rumours this afternoon after a brief chat with Sky Sports.

The massive defender is a cult figure at Ewood Park after moving in a virtual unknown in January 2007.

There has been specualtion that Man City, Everton and West Ham are all interested in the man known as King Kong of the Congo but it has all been scattered rumour more than anything substantial.

Samba insists he is not dwelling too much on the transfer talk and will wait to see what happens.

Big Chris, spoke to Sky Sports and said - 'I am still at Blackburn so I can't comment,'

'Whoever wants me will need to talk to Blackburn Rovers and we will see.

'I have nothing to add. I am calm and waiting. I have had a great holiday.'

This to me seems like a hedge the bets type tactic. Samba I am sure he is keeping his options open but clearly he is very happy at Rovers.

Think we are safe with this one because it would take a monster offer for Sam to sell Samba.

Can't see it - it would surely need a massive offer to prise Chris Samba from Ewood.

Blackburn`s game against Doncaster had already been called off. If it hadn`t, it definitely would with the Republic of Ireland`s decision to include two defenders in the final squad.

No Tippy-Tappy Performer

Bradley Dack has proven plenty of ability on the ball and has a keen eye for a goal, but the former Gillingham man has also show he's physically able and willing to get stuck in.

Modest Marksman

You'll not find many who haven't been impressed by Armstrong since he came to Blackburn. The on-loan Newcastle forwards goalscoring exploits speak for themselves.

Different Date Same Outcome

International call ups for Leutwiler, Mulgrew and Evans, along with provisional calls for Lenihan and Williams mean the trip to Doncaster has changed, the hoped outcome wouldn't.
