QPR lodge bid for Blackburn’s Samba

QPR have made an offer to Blackburn for defender Chris Samba.

Rangers have tabled a bid of around £5m for the 27-year-old centre-back, who has made 160 league appearances for Rovers since joining them from German side Hertha Berlin in 2007.

Samba is one of a number of defenders the R’s have shown an interest in as they look to strengthen their squad during the transfer window.

He is also a target for Tottenham, who were hoping to sign Gary Cahill from Bolton but look likely to miss out.

A move to White Hart Lane for Samba could pave the way for QPR to sign Sebastien Bassong from Spurs.

Rangers thought they were getting Bassong on loan during the previous transfer window but the deal was called off when Tottenham failed to land Cahill.
