Harry Redknapp looks to sign Blackburn's Christopher Samba on an £8m deal.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is reportedly interested in signing Blackburn defender Christopher Samba.

Blackburn, who are looking to balance the books at Ewood Park, are believed to be willing to part with the centre-back for £8m in order to free up his wages, according to The Mirror.

The Congo international had long been linked with a move to local rivals Arsenal before the club signed Per Mertesacker earlier this season.

Samba, who arrived at Blackburn from Hertha Berlin, has made 158 appearances in four season at the club.
