Tottenham defender target Chris Samba has pleaded with Blackburn to let him go for a reasonable fee in the winter transfer month, with the defender claiming that the club's owners have no understanding of English football.

Earlier in the month, Samba handed in a transfer request at Rovers, despite having signed a contract extension keeping him at the club until 2015.

The 27 year old claimed that promises were broken by the side's owners, and that he hopes to find a home with more ambition before the end of January.

But Blackburn hit back in the media, claiming that despite already having received a bid this month for Samba, they wouldn't be letting their captain go until he had seen out his agreement.

But now, as Samba continues to push for a move away from Blackburn, the centre back has claimed that he has no problems with Steve Kean, but has taken a personal issue with Venky's as he looks to leave for another club.

"When a couple don't get on they get a divorce - and that's what me and Blackburn have to do," he told the Sun. "Blackburn need players who are 100 per cent for the club - and I'm not.

"The only way to solve this is for them to let me go. It will be very difficult for me to play for this team again.

"I'm at the end of the road here. I'm not going to change so, for their good and mine, they must sell me now."

Harry Redknapp admitted at the start of the month that he liked the look of Samba, along with Bolton centre back Gary Cahill, though Cahill has now been sold to Chelsea.

And while QPR have shown an interest in Samba as well, Redknapp has insisted that Tottenham would beat their Premier League counterpart to sign Samba, with the north London club able to offer the possibility of Champions League football if they qualify at the end of this season.

"I've tried to sign Cahill so many times. He is a good player and he is not expensive," the Tottenham boss said two weeks ago, as reported by Sky Sports.

"Samba is a good player, too. If Tottenham wanted him, we would have a big chance, with no disrespect to QPR."

Tottenham are yet to make a signing this transfer window, and though Redknapp has been open about chasing particular players, such as Cahill, Samba, James Forrest, Mauro Zarate and Loic Remy, the Spurs manager will no doubt start chasing hard to bolster his squad when deadline day hits.
