Tottenham rival Arsenal for Blackburn defender Samba

Blackburn Rovers boss Steve Kean is determined to keep Christopher Samba.

Arsenal have been joined by Tottenham in their interest for Samba.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp was linked with a move for the £12million-rated defender in January, but felt he was covered in that position.

Rovers boss Kean said: "The owners were fantastic in January in giving the likes of Chris Samba and Phil Jones new five-year contracts.

"By doing that we were protecting our investments. Hopefully we can fight off as many bids as we can.

"We will fight tooth and nail to keep players."
