QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits he needs to add to his squad.

Steven Caulker, Jordon Mutch, Rio Ferdinand and loanee Mauricio Isla have arrived this summer but Redknapp thinks the squad is still a little thin.

"We need to get a couple more in, we're short in some areas," said Redknapp.

"I've got three central midfield players - Joey Barton, Alejandro Faurlin and Karl Henry - when you need six midfield players really, at this level.

"So we're looking to get one or two midfielders in and maybe a front man as well, because we need a bit of cover there. You need four strikers, in an ideal world.

"If you look at the whole squad, with everyone fit we've got 18 or 19 outfield players, and that includes one or two lads who couldn't get in the squad last year.

"We'll probably use the loan system again. Maybe we'll buy one and loan a couple."
