Harry Redknapp, the Queens Park Rangers manager has claimed that he would like to complete the signing or four or five players during the summer transfer window as he gets ready to lead the club’s promotion charge back to the Premier League next season.
The Championship club came very close to pulling off the signing of england striker Gary Hooper from scottish giants Celtic but the move fell through in the end and ultimately, Premier League club Norwich City swooped to complete a swift deal for the player who had been the star of the Bhoys’ Scottish Premier League campaign last term.
And though visibly upset at losing out on one of his prime transfer targets, Harry Redknapp is still upbeat that he can bring in four or five new players who can help the club gain promotion back to the Premier League. Redknapp also mentioned that he was upset at losing out on signing Hooper, who wanted to come to Queens Park Rangers but a lack of effort from the club management allowed Norwich City to swoop for him.
And although Hooper has gone on record to state that the lure of the Premier League would have been hard to turn down, the former West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur manager has insisted that Hooper wanted a move to Loftus Road and not Carrow Road.
Speaking of the new season, Harry stated that the club is building a team for the term and he still has a few players on his shortlist of targets but added that when he does put his team together, it will be a strong lineup, capable of beating andy and every side in the Championship.
Queens Park Rangers get their Championship campaign underway against Sheffied Wednesday at home in Loftus Road on the 3rd of August.
