QPR have made a 5million bid for Blackburn defender Christopher Samba, Press Association Sport understands.

The west Londoners have made no secret of their ambition to bring in new faces during the January transfer window as they look to stave off relegation.

Press Association Sport understands a bid of £5million has been made for the Blackburn defender, who is also reportedly attracting interest from high-flying Tottenham.

QPR manager Neil Warnock has openly admitted he needs to strengthen the squad, highlighting centre-back and attack as the key area for reinforcements.

Having completed the loan signing of Manchester United striker Federico Macheda earlier this week, Warnock has now turned his attention to bringing in Samba to sure up his defence.

Samba has been at Ewood Park since 2007, having joined from German side Hertha Berlin.
