Chris Samba: Expecting to remain in Russia with Anzhi

The commanding centre-half has already been involved in one transfer during the current window - taking him from Queens Park Rangers to Russia and a second spell at Anzhi.

Since that switch, Anzhi have revealed their intention to cut costs and offload high earners - with the likes of Willian and Samuel Eto'o generating plenty of interest.

Reports have suggested that Samba could also be sold, with West Ham United among those said to be keen on bringing the former Blackburn Rovers and QPR defender back to England.

The 29-year-old has, however, attempted to curb the rumours by expressing his commitment to the Anzhi cause.

Samba told BobSoccer: "I'm not going anywhere.

"The fact is that the club has decided to rejuvenate things and is undergoing a bit of a makeover. But I'm here and I'm doing my job.

"There is no question of my departure. I want to say this again, I'm at home here and I'm not going anywhere."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
