Queens Park Rangers boss Mark Hughes has rejected talk that he is set to make a move for Anzhi Makhachkala defender Christopher Samba in January, according to talkSPORT.
Hughes signed Samba at Blackburn Rovers for less than half a million pounds in 2007, but it seems that financial differences now would be in the way of any move happening in January.
Samba would also link up with former team mates Junior Hoilett and Ryan Nelson from his Rovers days, but Hughes has admitted that the player’s current wages would be a huge issue and basically rules QPR out of being the Congolese defenders next club.
“I haven’t seen that. I don’t like to talk about it. I’m not sure where that came from,” Hughes told talkSPORT.
“He’s at a club where he’s paid a substantial amount of money to work hard.
“That takes us out of the equation in terms of what we can do.”
