Givet is currently on loan at Blackburn from French side Marseille.
“Gael has been very good since coming here,” Samba told the Lancashire Evening Telegraph. “It does take time to settle into The Premier League but Gael has done it very quickly, quicker than anyone expected.
“It feels like he is part of the club already and I think he has played very well for us. He is a good defender.
“The supporters do like him and I think they would like him to sign for Blackburn. I also think Gael would love to sign but first of all we all have to concentrate on staying up.”
