Christopher Samba has reiterated his desire to leave Blackburn Rovers during the January transfer window.

Samba had a transfer request rejected earlier this month, but the Blackburn captain remains determined to force his way out of Ewood Park.

Talking to The Sun newspaper, Samba said: “When a couple don’t get on, they get a divorce, and that’s what me and Blackburn have to do.”

“I’ve put my body on the line for this club, even playing when I’ve been injured. Nobody can say I have not given everything for Blackburn.

Samba claims that Blackburn Rovers’ owners Venky’s have failed to honour promises given when Samba signed a new contract last January.

Samba said: “I signed a new deal last January right at the end of the transfer window because Venky’s told me they had big plans.

“Names like Ronaldinho were mentioned and they promised there was going to be a lot of investment in the team. It hasn’t happened and I’ve decided I can’t stay anymore.

“I want to go to a club with ambitions like mine, which wants to go forward. Blackburn aren’t going forward at all. If anything we are worse off than a year ago.”

Samba began his career with Sedan before moving to Hertha Berlin. The Congolese defender joined Blackburn Rovers in January 2007 for a fee of £450,000 and has since been a mainstay in the Blackburn team.
