The takeover at QPR could be good news for Spurs fans looking to trim the deadwood from the squad before the transfer window closes in just seven days’ time.
From the first two games of our season, it seems apparent that Peter Crouch is the odd striker out and having not featured thus far, it’s suggested that Harry is just waiting to seal the Adebayor deal before letting Crouch go. Last week there were suggestions of a loan deal to AC Milan, but club and player are thought to prefer a permanent transfer to Loftus Road.
Jermaine Jenas is another player to have been linked to QPR this summer and while he has been struggling with injury, it’s felt that he is still surplus to requirements and could finally make the move in the next few days.
“It’s all right having money and making offers but getting them to sign and move on with you is a different ball game,” said QPR manager Neil Warnock.
“In 10 days, I’ve got to do 12 weeks’ work. In an ideal world, we’ve always done it early.
“It wasn’t possible and we’ve just got to try to grasp this opportunity and strengthen the squad to give us a chance up to Christmas.”
Sounds like it might be time to take advantage of that desperation and offload some deadwood down Shepherd’s Bush way.
