Congolese defender Samba and France striker Remy have proved instant successes at Loftus Road following big-money arrivals in January from Anzhi Makhachkala and Marseille, respectively.
Remy, 26, scored three times in his first five starts to breathe new life into the seemingly desperate survival scrap of Harry Redknapp’s basement boys.
And ex-Blackburn Rovers star Samba has been equally impressive at the back, helping shore up one of the top-flight’s weakest defences.
