QPRQPR boss hints at summer bid for Defoe

QPR manager Harry Redknapp

Harry Redknapp has hinted that he may look to sign Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe if QPR are promoted this season.

Former Spurs manager Redknapp was keen to sign the England international, 31, last summer but never came close to pulling off what would have been a major transfer coup.

But he believes he could have a realistic chance of landing Defoe if Rangers get back to the Premier League.

“It was never really a goer while we were in the Championship,” said the R’s boss.

“If we could get back to the Premier League next year it could be different as that’s the kind of player you’d be looking for.”

Defoe, who played under Redknapp at Portsmouth as well as Tottenham, is under contract at White Hart Lane until 2015.

There has been speculation that he could leave Spurs during the January transfer window.
