"Just at loftus Road had a good chat with both Managers Harry & Chris, no Remy 4QPR did a groin in training& Samba not match fit but playing."
"If it's big money for Samba, that's up to the chairman and the shareholders," said Redknapp.
"It's their decision to spend the money. It wasn't a case of me telling them to go out and buy Samba. I don't think he is coming for anywhere near £100,000 a week, but whatever he is earning, it's their decision to spend the money."
QPR: Green, Park, Granero, Jenas, Ben Haim, Zamora, Bothroyd
NORWICH: Camp, Whittaker, Howson, Jackson, E.Bennett, Becchio, R.Bennett
"I think Chris Samba is a good player, and I do not know how accurate the figures are, but by all accounts it is a lot of money QPR have invested in him.
"QPR have signed a lot of players, and a lot of them are probably on wages that are a lot bigger than the players who have been there since the Championship days. As a player, if you sign a contract that you are happy with it at the time, you have to deal with it and be professional.
"The fact that QPR have signed half a team says everything about the situation they are in, what is unique though is that most struggling teams are also struggling financially, but QPR have been able to buy.
"They have given themselves a chance and I expect the new players to have a positive impact. Norwich have a different model to QPR and were relatively quiet in January.
"I am really looking forward to this game, and I expect QPR to get the win if they are able to start the game at the right tempo."
