QPR midfielder Samba Diakite joins Al Ittihad

QPR midfielder Samba Diakite has completed his loan move to Saudi Arabia.

Diakite has joined Al Ittihad on a season-long loan.

The Malian international, 25, joined Rangers permanently following a number of excellent performances while on loan from Nancy in 2011/12.

However, having struggled to impress again since, Diakite will now spend the campaign away from Loftus Road after time on loan at Watford last season.
