Harry Redknapp says that he wants to keep record signing Christopher Samba at Queens Park Rangers despite being relegated to the Championship.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp remains hopeful that he can keep Christopher Samba at the club despite their relegation to the Championship.

The centre-back made the move to Loftus Road from Anzhi Makhachkala in January for a club record fee of £12.5m.

However, Redknapp wants to keep the former Blackburn Rovers man as he targets an immediate return to the Premier League.

"I'd like to keep him, he'd be the best centre-half in the Championship," Redknapp said.

"He had one bad day at Fulham and everyone got on his case. He's a good player and we need him back playing.

"[But] I don't know what will happen."

QPR host Newcastle United on Sunday.
