Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp wants Blackburn Rovers defender Christopher Samba.

The Daily Mail says with injury concerns over both Ledley King and William Gallas, Spurs have put central defender Samba at the top of their list.

Redknapp is aware of prospective QPR manager Mark Hughes's interest and the White Hart Lane manager will table a £7m bid in a bid to get his man.

Samba is keen to leave Ewood Park and a move to Champions League-chasing Spurs would be favourable to the 27-year-old.

But Hughes hopes his relationship with the player will change his mind.
