Queens Park Rangers might move in for Toronto’s Jermain Defoe

According to Sky Sports, Queens Park Rangers could make an approach for Toronto striker Jermain Defoe in January

The newly-promoted side went in for the England striker in the summer, and during the course of this season, but failed in their attempts. Rangers manager Harry Redknapp admitted he would love to sign him again, as he did as manager of Tottenham and Portsmouth, but hinted that it might not happen.

“(The deal isn’t) anywhere near being concluded with Jermain. We tried to get him before the deadline, but I don’t think there is any movement on that one at the moment. I am a fan of Jermain’s, I have signed him enough times. He is a goalscorer and obviously a player you would like at your club, if possible, but the figures would have to be right,” he said.

As only two sides have scored less goals than QPR, the Londoners are in need of some firepower in January, and Redknapp added that he will try and convince club owner Tony Fernandes.

“I have not spoken to Tony about that yet. (Defoe) is a player I am sure we would be interested in, in January. It depends on the expense of it all and what the deal is. Tony would deal with that, so it’s up to him.”
