QPR have sold defender Christopher Samba back to Anzhi Makhachkala for £12m.
The 29-year-old centre-back signed a four-and-a-half-year deal with the R's and was reportedly earning wages of about £100,000 a week.
Samba made 10 appearances last season, but could not help Rangers avoid relegation from the Premier League.
QPR boss Harry Redknapp revealed the club rejected a "massive offer" for Samba before the Russian transfer window closed in February.
But the Congo-Brazzaville international's high wages caused issues with some supporters, with Samba telling them to "get over it" following their defeat by Fulham in April.
