Blackburn's Samba makes Anzhi move
Blackburn Rovers have confirmed defender Christopher Samba has completed his move to Anzhi Makhachkala for an undisclosed fee.
The transfer window in Russia did not close until today and the Russian side, who recently appointed Guus Hiddink as their coach, have taken advantage to add Samba to their growing list of stars.
The 27-year-old made a transfer request in January, but remained at Ewood Park after the winter window closed when a possible move to Queens Park Rangers or Tottenham Hotspur failed to materialise.
The Anzhi squad already boasts Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o, Russia international Yuri Zhirkov and former Brazil defender Roberto Carlos, while they have also been linked with a number of other high-profile players.
