Everyone in football, including us here at the Football Transfer Tavern were a little surprised, yet impressed with Harry Redknapp’s acquisition of Loic Remy in the January transfer window last week and according to the Daily Mail, the QPR manager is not stopping there.
Always known to be active in the transfer market, Remy was a major coup for the Loftus Road-based club and despite the blow of losing Ryan Nelsen to a managerial position at MLS outfit Toronto FC, the ex-Spurs boss has actually made QPR look like something that resembles a team again.
Redknapp is now looking at bringing in some of his former and very trusted players, having his eye on Dynamo Kiev’s Niko Kranjcar who of course played for both Portsmouth and Tottenham under Redknapp while eyeing a swoop for some fresh blood in Toulouse’s French international Moussa Sissoko.
Redknapp is looking to strengthen the side and make sure that not only are they stronger at the back but they also have that bit of spark in midfield and despite the multi million pound squad that had been assembled under former boss Mark Hughes, Redknapp does not feel they are quite there yet.
The club are still purring from their capture of Remy of course and are looking to add players of a similar calibre and nature.
