QPR keen to sign Peter Crouch and Christoper Samba
Queens Park Rangers are looking to sign several new players before the January transfer deadline window closes.

Peter Crouch was on the QPR books back in the year 2000 and his impressive performances saw the striker move to Portsmouth before further transfers to Aston Villa, Southampton, Liverpool, Portsmouth (again), Tottenham and then Stoke City.
The 31-year-old has only been at the Britannia Stadium for eighteen months, although he’s now been linked with a move back to London for a potential second spell at Loftus Road, with former manager Harry Redknapp looking to snare a player that cost the Potters £10 million.
Meanwhile, it also appears that Redknapp was to land the signature of Chris Samba, with the former Blackburn defender currently on the books at Russian club Anzhi.
“These are two players whose names have been mentioned but at the moment we’re not close to doing anything,” Redknapp told BBC Sport.
“Crouch’s name came up in a meeting with the chairman but I don’t think Stoke want to sell him.
“On Samba, again the chairman is dealing with this. At this stage I don’t think that’s a goer. I like Christopher Samba and he is a very good player but at this stage I don’t see him leaving Russia.
“Things can changes but at this stage we’re not close to doing anything.”
