QPR signed Chris Samba from Anzhi Makhachkala in a £12.5m deal on deadline day, smashing the previous club record set by the arrival of Loïc Rémy earlier in January.
Despite concerns over QPR’s spending, Redknapp insisted the signings were a positive and is confident the new players can keep the Hoops in the top flight – or be sold for a profit in the summer.
“Everyone is going on about Samba. You will sell Samba at the end of the season if you want to sell him because Samba should be playing for a top four team,” Redknapp said.
“He is a monster of a player, as quick as lightning, fantastic in the air, can play. He has got the lot and is the full ticket. At the end of the season, if it doesn’t go well, they will go and get £12m for Samba, not a danger.
“There will be managers out there who will be thinking ‘I thought he was gone, but now he is back in England’. There will be takers for Samba all day. So they have not done their money on Samba.
“Remy for £8m, if he can come and score a few goals, he will be £12m. We [Tottenham] tried to buy him for £18m last year. The two kids from Tottenham. One was three grand [a week] and the one doesn’t come to a lot of money.
“They are good players. The club’s invested, but they will get their money back on those players.”
