QPR loan out Samba Diakite
Queens Park Rangers midfielder Samba Diakite has joined Saudi Arabian side Al Ittihad on a season-long loan, the Premier League club have announced.
The 25-year-old Mali international joined QPR on a permanent deal in the summer of 2012 after impressing during a six-month loan spell from Nancy.
However, he has since struggled to tie down a first-team spot at Loftus Road and spent part of last season on loan at Watford.
In total, Diakite has made 23 appearances for the R's, scoring one goal.
