QPR make £5m Blackburn Samba bid

QPR have bid £5m for Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba Christopher Samba joined Blackburn Rovers in 2007 from Hertha Berlin

QPR have made a £5m bid for Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba.

Manager Neil Warnock has made the 27-year-old Congolese his first permanent target of the January transfer window.

Warnock, backed by Malaysian tycoon Tony Fernandes, has promised signings to help QPR climb away from the Premier League relegation zone.

He signed Manchester United’s Italian striker Federico Macheda on loan in midweek, but has admitted he needs to strengthen his defence.

Samba, who joined Rovers for £450,000 in 2007 from German side Hertha Berlin, has made 160 Premier League appearances, scoring 16 goals.

Warnock may have a fight on his hands to sign him as Tottenham Hotspur are also reported to be interested.

Blackburn have confirmed that assistant manager Paul Clement has left the club and is now expected to join Paris St Germain, to be reunited with his former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti.
