Redknapp admits QPR unlikely to pursue Chelsea's Salah

Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah is unlikely to be a target for a January loan, according to QPR boss Harry Redknapp. The Hoops boss, who is still looking for another striker despite the arrival of West Ham's Mauro Zarate, also rejected any fresh interest in Ajax forward Kolbeinn Sigthorsson, while confirming QPR were only looking at loan deals in the January window.

"Of course I would take him (Salah) on loan but he is not available," said Redknapp of the Egyptian international.

"I don't think Chelsea would loan him, I haven't thought about him, he's a good player but I don't think Chelsea will let him go.

"We're only looking at loans really, a couple of loans, that's where you're at.

"You can only take two loans from this country so we haven't got an awful lot left up our sleeve, it's difficult.

"We'd like to have another (striker) if possible, it would help.

"It was quite a while ago that we made an approach for him (Sigthorsson).

"So there's nothing happening there, no."
