QPR broke their transfer record on a hectic deadline day but the signing of Christopher Samba was overshadowed by a bizarre situation involving Peter Odemwingie.

Hoops manager Harry Redknapp confirmed he was interested in signing West Brom striker Odemwingie and, while he was speaking, the Nigerian international drove to London and addressed a waiting media scrum, making comments to suggest he was set to seal a deal to Rangers.

That was immediately contradicted by West Brom who issued a statement to say he had not been granted permission and QPR then told Press Association Sport that West Brom's story was correct and that the 31-year-old striker had turned up at Lotus Road "unannounced" and that he had "been denied access to Loftus Road".
