Giant defender may make immediate return to former club.
Queens Park Rangers centre-back Christopher Samba is wanted by his ex-employers Anzhi Makhachkala, according to reports in the Daily Star.
The 29-year-old only joined the struggling West London club on the final day of the January transfer window in what was a club-record £12.5 million deal.
However, with QPR now almost certain to be relegated from the Premier League come the end of the season, owner Tony Fernandes is desperate to remove all the high earners from the club’s astronomical wage bill, with Samba on a reported £100,000 per week in the capital.
And, with the massive Congo international hardly helping to tighten up the relegation-threatened club’s back four since he arrived at Loftus Road, you can understand just why QPR are so keen to send him back to Russia.
The nadir in Samba’s brief QPR career came in their recent 3-2 loss at fellow west Londoners’ Fulham in the top flight, when the centre half was responsible for two of the Cottagers’ goals in what was a woeful performance, only compounding the fact that the player was not even fit enough to start any games when he first arrived.
