QPR boss offered players for next season

Redknapp reluctant to do any deals until Rangers' fate is decided

Plenty to ponder: QPR boss Harry Redknapp

Harry Redknapp reveals he’s been inundated with offers of players for next season - but the QPR boss has told agents nothing doing until he knows what division the club is in.

After winning a place in the Championship play-offs on Monday, Rangers hope it all ends in Wembley joy at the end of May.

However, new faces in a squad returning to the elite is not the same as one facing a second season a division down, reckons Harry.

The situation is slightly complicated by the manager’s expected knee operation demanding business gets done on the end of a phone while he convalesces at his Sanbanks home.

He said: “People are ringing me up saying what are you looking for next season? I haven’t a clue because I don’t know what league we’ll be in.

“If you get promoted you’re looking at players who will keep you in the Premier League, it’s a different scene.

“As for my op, It’s only a phone call that’s needed most of the time, and not as if you’re running round the country chasing people.”

Defender Richard Dunne has already won a year’s extension. Rob Green and Clint Hill are expected in talks soon for new deals, but Stephane Mbia and Loic Remy are almost certain to be sold, and the fate of 15 more, out of contract, hangs in the balance.
