QPR defender returns to previous club.

Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Christopher Samba has completed a deal that sees him return to his former club Anzhi Makhachkala according to The Daily Mail.

The centre-back signed for QPR from the Russian side for £12 million during the previous January transfer window.

But Samba was not taken to by the QPR faithful who questioned whether he was worth reported £100,000 a week wages at a time when the club knew they were facing the very real prospect of relegation.

The signing of Samba proved insufficient to keep the club up and the fans concerns were realised, leading to QPR facing up to the need of massively cutting their wage bill.

The previous transfer policy is now coming back to hurt the club as they are unable to find interest suitors for the likes of French striker Loic Remy.

Anzhi were however happy to take back Samba for an undisclosed fee, suggesting QPR managed to recoup close to what they paid for the defender.

QPR boss Harry Redknapp will now turn his attention to concluding exit deals for other big name players.

Arsenal target Julio Cesar is expected to secure a move away from Loftus Road in the coming weeks while the future of Joey Barton remains uncertain after he returned from French club Marseille.
