QPR boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed interest in Porto defender Rolando.

Redknapp is now back in for him with QPR chief executive Phil Beard and chairman Tony Fernandes trying to push the deal through.

Redknapp said: "I have been over to Porto and met him, it's a difficult deal to do.

"I met the boy and had a good chat and it was great. It's up to the chairman in the end, it's finances and it is down to the chairman and Chief Executive, not a lot down to managers.

"It's out of my hands now really. Good player if we could get him. I think it's a difficult one."
