It has been revealed that QPR are closing on a deal for Nancy midfielder Samba Diakite.
A statement on the Nancy website suggested terms had already been agreed but also that no contract had yet been signed by the 23 year old defensive midfielder.
It read: “Samba Diakite is officially on loan to English club Queens Park Rangers until the end of the season. This loan will change automatically to a permanent transfer if the London club, currently 16th, stay clear of the relegation zone.
“Currently in Gabon with the Mali squad competing in the African Nations Cup, the player has received permission from coach Alain Giresse to make the round trip to London to undergo a medical and to sign his contract.”
