Blackburn fullback Chimbonda confirms West Ham move was on

Pascal Chimbonda is keen to discuss a new deal with Blackburn Rovers.

Chimbonda, who joined the North West side from Tottenham in the summer of 2009, has revealed he would be happy to pledge his long-term future to Rovers.

"It is true West Ham tried to sign me on transfer deadline day, but Blackburn decided to keep me," Chimbonda told skysports.com.

"The chairman told me I was too important to the team to sell as I can play at right-back, left-back or centre-back.

"I have heard rumours about a new contract and I would be happy to sit down with the club and discuss a new deal to stay at Blackburn."
