Chris Samba: Set to leave QPR and return to Russia

Chris Samba: Set to leave QPR and return to Russia

The defender is one of relegated Rangers' highest earners but the club are set to recoup most of the club-record transfer fee they paid for his services in January.

Djibril Cisse has already left Loftus Road as Harry Redknapp reshapes his squad for the Championship, with further high-profile names such as Loic Remy expected to follow.

Samba arrived for £12.5m on a four-and-a-half deal with wages reported to be £100,000 a week - a figure that drew criticism from outsiders.

The former Blackburn player endured a difficult few months at the doomed London club and was drawn into a Twitter row with fans over his earnings after an error-strewn display in what proved a costly defeat to Fulham in April.

He later admitted that he was not ready for the rigours of the Premier League when he agreed to join the club in January.

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
