Purchase of loan portfolio from bank

Bank A has receivable from Bank B in the amount of 3,5 mln from normal trading operations.

Bank A has made decision to purchase Bank B credit portfolio for the 4 mln but Bank B transferred credit portfolio in the amount of 5 mln. Bank A considers that Bank B is a problematic bank and will not receive its amount due from Bank B and want to resolve this issue in a different way.

Bank A has made the following entry in its accounts.

Dr. Loan receivable – 5mln
Cr. Receivable form bank B 3.5
Cr. Cash  0.5 mln
Cr Loan receivable ( contra account) -1 mln

Subsequently Bank A made this double entry to recognize income gained from purchased loan portfolio based on effective interest rate method.

D-r Loan receivable ( contra account)
C-r Interest income

My question is that is this approach right or not. If not what your opinion or comment will be on the above stated issue.

Thank you in advance.
