Paul Warburton/Fulham Chronicle re Diakite
QPR close in on midfielder swoop
QPR are set to rush through the permanent £3.2m signing of Samba Diakité after clubs were alerted last night to a possible loophole in his loan deal with Hoops.
The defensive midfielder was signed in January from AS Nancy on a six-month loan that expires June 30.
Back in France it is understood one of the clauses that triggered an automatic €4million (£3.2m) transfer was a minimum number of games for Rs believed to be 10.
The man who plays internationally for Mali made only nine appearances in a Rangers shirt after a virus cut short his season.
Diakité has made plain his desire to join QPR rather than a switch to Marseille or Lyon when he was made available by Nancy.
But those working on his behalf are set to test the water with other Premier League clubs following the player’s impressive start in west London.
A source close to Nancy said: “The club are happy to sell Diakité to QPR for the agreed amount. Nancy is not a club who can afford to turn down a big money offer. But of course he may be desirable to other clubs as well, and the deal has yet to be ratified.” Fulham Chronicle
