HARRY Redknapp has ruled out new faces in the January transfer window unless struggling QPR get wins in the next seven games.
The new Rangers boss believes it would be a waste of money to get players in on expensive contracts if he ends up with them in the Championship next season.
Redknapp has already been linked with Darren Bent, David Beckham, Joe Cole, Nicolas Anelka – but insists he has made no contact with any of them or their agents.
He added: “If we don’t pick up points, what’s the point of adding five new players or whatever and ending up with a big wage bill?”
The new man will have to do without the services of keeper Julio Cesar for the vital visit of Aston Villa tomorrow.
The Brazilian has a ‘slight tear’ of the groin sustained during the heartening 0-0 draw at Sunderland on Tuesday with Rob Green ready to pick up the mantle of keeping a second clean sheet in a row.
Redknapp said: “The work rate was very good at Sunderland, but we’re not well balanced.
“In some areas (midfield) we have options in others we’re not so well off. A club needs maybe four or five big strikers and we haven’t.
Apart from Cesar, Rs are without strikers Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora, both out with long-term injuries as Rangers go in search of a first win of the season.
