Diarra snubs late Roma offer to join QPR

QPR-bound midfielder Lassana Diarra has rejected a last-minute approach from Roma.

The 29-year-old has left Russian club Lokomotiv Moscow and is expected to move to Loftus Road on a one-year deal on Monday.

He played under Rangers boss Harry Redknapp at Portsmouth, who signed him in 2008, following spells at Arsenal and Chelsea.

Diarra spent a year at Pompey before a £20m transfer to Real Madrid, where he made 49 La Liga appearances and featured in the Champions League.

He is keen to move back to London and has completed a medical.
