West Ham United are keen to bring QPR boss Harry Redknapp back to the club.

The People says Redknapp will be asked to lead West Ham towards the Olympic Stadium if they part company with Sam Allardyce.

Senior board members want QPR chief Redknapp to make a ­sensational return to the club he managed from 1994 to 2001.

West Ham are well aware that brokering a deal to take him back across London will not be easy, not least because he has a QPR contract until June 2015.

There would also be some opposition to Redknapp at board level, as well as from some supporters.
