Warnock looking at "brand QPR" with Asian signings

Neil Warnock has revealed that Queens Park Rangers are looking strengthen their their squad during January, and then disclosed they could target new signings from Asia. "If we sign a few players from Asia, it will definitely help QPR develop as a brand," he is quoted as saying in The London Evening Standard.

"By owning a Premier League club Tony (Fernandes) has shot up in profile over there. This is the start of something and I feel the club can develop a global presence because of the owners and the contacts they have.

"They (the board) know we need some more players and they have been very supportive," added Warnock. "We are on the lookout for four or five.

"I'm not saying they're all going to be big-name signings but we need numbers in the squad.

"You could spend £10million on a striker and he will not play as well as Heidar Helguson on Saturday, so you have to be careful as a manager.

"By all means we want to improve the squad long-term, as well as the immediate concern."
