According to the press, QPR manager Harry Redknapp is making noises over his loan signing – Spurs midfielder Tom Carroll. There are claims that Tottenham’s new head coach Tim Sherwood is looking to recall the England Under 21 man before the end of this transfer window and Redknapp is urging him to make a quick decision.
“I’m not sure what’s happening,” said Harry.
“It’s up to Tim Sherwood what he wants to do. He likes him an awful lot and has been excellent for us.
“I haven’t spoken to Tim for a week or so, but if he wants to take him back I need to know because we need time to try and find somebody else.
“I wouldn’t want to leave it until the last minute. It’s a difficult time of year to find players.”
Even with a number of injuries, Spurs seem top heavy in midfield so where would Carroll fit in? Another way to look at that is to consider how Nabil Bentaleb has come from nowhere to nail down a first team place. Could Carroll do the same alongside him or is it better for the player’s development if he continues to battle for promotion with QPR?
