Blackburn Rovers captain Christopher Samba has again asked to leave the club and has said he needs a 'divorce' at Ewood Park.
Tottenham and Queens Park Rangers are both interested in a £7million bid for the centre-back and earlier in January he requested a transfer.
Blackburn owners Venky's and manager Steve Kean are adamant Samba is not for sale, but he is presently training with the club's reserves after making it clear he is not committed.
There is now less than a week to go in the January transfer window and the 27-year-old remains desperate to leave, however, an end to the stand-off does not appear to be close.
Sell me now
Samba said in The Sun: "When a couple don't get on they get a divorce, and that's what me and Blackburn have to do."
He added: "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."
The Congo international has also accused Blackburn's owners of failing to keep promises and claims the fee being sought for his services - a reported £15m - is unreasonable.
"I signed a new deal last January, because Venky's told me they had big plans," he said. "Names like Ronaldinho were mentioned and they promised there was going to be a lot of investment in the team. It hasn't happened.
"They don't understand football in this country and they don't realise how much I've given to Blackburn and that they have broken promises they have made. I stayed, because I believed them, but they weren't honest with me and now I know I made the wrong decision.
"I share the frustration of the fans who must have believed the owners too."
He continued: "I'm not a £15m player. Blackburn only signed me for £400,000 from Hertha Berlin and if they get £7m now then that's very good business.
"I've got nothing against the manager. It's not like he's been given £100million to spend, he's trying to do the best he can with what he has. This is between me and the owners. It's personal."
