QPR boss Harry Redknapp has revealed Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole is moving to West Ham United.

Liverpool playmaker Cole topped Redknapp's wish list but the 31-year-old has opted to return to boyhood club West Ham, according to the Rangers boss.

"If I can improve the squad in the window it will give us a chance. This win is very important for us when it comes to signing players," Redknapp said.

"They might think that now we do have a chance and it would be nice to try and help us get out of this mess and achieve something. Let's be up for the challenge.

"I lost Joe who would have been my first signing. He probably looked here and thought 'Harry I love you but you're not going to stay up'.

"I like Joe and he would have been good for me. He's West Ham and they love him there. I thought he was coming for sure but West Ham came in today."
