After a frenzied summer of transfer activity, followed by the swift sacking of manager Mark Hughes, QPR are back in the transfer market in a big way.
With a seemingly bottomless pit of funds, The Hoops have wasted little time in jumping to the top of the January spending charts by all but sealing deals for two excellent players.
After a successful battle with Newcastle United, QPR will imminently welcome the talents of Loic Remy, the French international from Marseille, in a deal worth a reported £8m. Harry earlier said of his new boy:
‘I watched him so many times when I was at Tottenham. The fee then was around about £20m. He’s a good buy for us.
‘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.’
In a superb day for QPR fans, the boss also asserted that a deal for Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila is close:
‘I also liked M’Vila when I was at Tottenham.
‘He’s 22, played against England a couple of years ago for France, and was fantastic.
‘They turned down £28m from an English club for him a year ago. Spurs offered £15m for him in August. The deal looks okay.
‘M’Vila’s had a few off-the-field problems. If he behaves himself, and plays as we know he can, he’ll do well.’
soccersweep has long maintained that, with Harry Redkanpp on board, QPR will stay up this season. Now that they have made two genuinely high calibre additions to the team, things are certianly looking up for the West London club.
