Samba left out of squad for Arsenal game

Blackburn defender Christopher Samba has been left out of the squad for the match with Arsenal at the Emirates this weekend. Rovers' manager Steve Kean confirmed that Samba would not be available for the crucial Premier League clash.

"I'm prepared to say he's fit and he's available but he's not in the squad," Kean said.

"I'd rather speak about people who are available to play against Arsenal. Chris has trained well but he's not going to be in this squad."

Samba has not played a game for Blackburn since handing in a transfer request during the January transfer window.
