Samba opens talks with Rovers over new deal
Rovers captain Chris Samba will have a new contract offer from the club in writing in the next 24 hours as Rovers strive to keep hold of an integral part of the defence.
Samba has been linked with a move elsewhere (namely Villa and Arsenal) but since a very negative interview against Venky's over Christmas talk of him staying at the club he has served for 4 years has been more positive.
And Kean is certainly, er, keen.
Steve Kean kept it short and sweet on Sky Sports - 'We have opened talks with Chris and had a really good chat with him.
'We hope to get something to him in writing within the next 24 hours so that he can commit his future to the club.'
