QPR boss Harry Redknapp is ready to try again for West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odemwingie.

The Express & Star says Redknapp is facing competition from Italian outfits Sassuolo and Roma for Colombian Duvan Zapata, and so is said to be turning his attention back to Odemwingie.

It comes seven months after Odemwingie drove from the Midlands to London on deadline day and was filmed sitting in his car near QPR's Loftus Road home, voicing his delight at joining them - but then saw a deal fall through.
