QPR boss Redknapp admits he needs to get busy in market

QPR boss Harry Redknapp admits he must get busy in the summer market.

Redknapp is hopeful chairman Tony Fernandes can get some deals over the line, with Leroy Fer and Troy Deeney both on his radar.

"We are still short, we have two strikers," Redknapp said. "We have Bobby [Zamora] and Charlie [Austin] but it is taking time. Hopefully in the next week or so we can put that right.

"We need some players there is no doubt about that, you can play any system you want but it takes a few good players, which we are short of, to make the difference.

"We're trying to get things done, Tony knows that obviously.

"You can't go into a season with two strikers, Bobby is an off-the-bench man now and he knows that after what he did last season in the play-off final."

He added: "We need a couple of midfield players. And we need a number 10.

"We need to strengthen the squad for sure. If we can get good loans we will take them, but that have to be better than you already have, that's the key.

"We need a bit of quality, it is going to be a tough division this year. And we need that little bit of quality to keep us in there."
