QPR have forked out a club record fee to secure the signing of Anzhi defender Christopher Samba on a four-and-a-half year deal.

The former Blackburn centre-back was one of the west Londoners' key targets for transfer deadline day as Harry Redknapp looks to shore up his defence.

That deal is now complete, with Samba joining for an undisclosed club record fee, subject to the player receiving international clearance.
