Queens Park Rangers agree a deal to sell Christopher Samba back to former club Anzhi Makhachkala, according to reports.

Queens Park Rangers are reportedly close to agreeing a deal which will see them recoup their £12m January outlay on central defender Christopher Samba.

Hoops boss Harry Redknapp broke the club's transfer record to recruit Samba from Anzhi Makhachkala earlier this year, but the stopper failed to help QPR achieve Premier League survival.

Samba has agreed a lucrative return to Russia and former club Anzhi according to The Sun, with a deal expected to be finalised later this week.

Anzhi's bitter domestic rivals Zenit St Petersburg attempted to purchase the DR Congo international six months ago and have reportedly not given up the chase for his signature.

Redknapp is frantically attempting to rebuild his squad ahead of a Championship promotion push, with Julio Cesar and Loic Remy also reportedly close to securing moves away from Loftus Road.
