Redknapp confirms QPR to make M’Vila and Remy swoop

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed his club are close to a double transfer from France’s Ligue 1 in an effort to save their Premier League status. Sky Sports has reported that the division’s bottom club will sign Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila and Marseille striker Loic Remy, potentially having both deals done by the end of the week.

The move for Remy is expected to be concluded before the M’Vila transfer. Remy is likely to cost the Loftus Road club in the region of £8m and could be confirmed as early as Wednesday. M’Vila will join his compatriot a few days later, moving to West London for £7m.

Remy appeared set to join Newcastle United until QPR trumped the Magpies’ offer, with Redknapp revealing after QPR’s FA Cup replay win at West Bromwich Albion that Remy had already had his medical.

Redknapp said: “It's all done, all sorted. I didn't think we'd get him. I went to see him at Marseille last week and he wasn't keen but the chairman Tony Fernandes worked ever so hard. He wouldn't give up and the boy decided to come.

On M’Vila, the manager added: “I also liked M'Vila when I was at Tottenham. They (Rennes) turned down £28million from an English club for him a year ago. Spurs offered £15million for him in August. The deal looks okay.

QPR are currently bottom of the league table with 14 points from 22 games, five points short of safety. The R’s face a London derby against one of Redknapp’s former clubs, West Ham United, in their next league outing.
