Steve Kean has reiterated Blackburn Rovers' desire to retain star defender Chris Samba during the January transfer window.
The imposing stopper is keen to leave Ewood Park after submitting an official transfer request earlier this week.
Blackburn have already rejected two bids from one club for the 27-year-old, insisting they want to retain his services.
Tottenham, QPR and big-spending Paris St Germain have all been linked with the defender, but Kean has refused to confirm which clubs have tabled offers.
Samba is back in training after missing last weekend's clash against Fulham with a stomach bug and Kean will be doing his best to keep his services.
"Chris is here in the building just now. He had quite a bad stomach virus over the weekend. We have to make sure that's fine," he told Sky Sports.
"He's here, he's training today. The statement reads for itself. We want to keep Chris. Obviously we know there are bids out there for him.
"It's a mark of what we're trying to do that we've refused the bids. That's where we are. Hopefully he'll be training tomorrow with us.
"The statement is there for everyone to see. We've had two bids from one club. There's not been any other clubs in contact.
"Chris is under contract. We had dialogue with Chris on Tuesday and obviously he's handed in a transfer request.
"We are where we are. We want him to stay at the club. That's what we'll be fighting to do."
It had been suggested that Samba's possible departure could see fellow central defender Scott Dann also leave Ewood Park.
Kean has dismissed that notion and believes the return of Dann from injury will bode well for the second half of the campaign.
"I've dismissed that totally that there's any type of situation in Scott's contract that said that Chris has got to stay," he continued.
"It was a massive bonus when we got Scott Dann on deadline day. We managed to fight off other clubs in that window to hold on to Chris.
"That's what we'll be attempting to do in this window and we've got Scott coming back from injury so it all bodes well for us in the second part of the season."
