QPR boss Redknapp forced to drop bid for Spurs winger Townsend

QPR boss Harry Redknapp has been forced to drop his bid for Tottenham winger Andros Townsend.

Redknapp hoped he would be able to buy him this summer with competition for places intense at Spurs following a busy summer of transfer activity.

But he admitted: "Andros did great last year but Tottenham don't really want to sell him. He's not for sale as far as I know.

"It's difficult. I couldn't see us being able to buy him. I think he'd be too expensive for us.

"But I do like Andros - he'd be brilliant. I'd love to sign him on loan but whether we could do that, I wouldn't bet on it."
