QPR manager hints at move for Spurs striker

Redknapp could try to sign Tottenham's European record-breaker Defoe at the end of the season, he has revealed.

QPR could be set to sign Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe next summer.

Harry Redknapp has revealed he could make a move for Defoe, but only if Rangers win promotion to the Premier League.

Defoe scored a club-record 23rd European goal for Tottenham as they defeated FC Sheriff in the Europa League on Thursday night.

And Redknapp, who wanted to sign Defoe during the summer but could not afford him, suggested he could make another attempt if the Rs reach the top flight.

Redknapp said: “He was too expensive for us while we are in the Championship. If we were in the Premier League next year it could be different. That’s the type of player you would be looking for. But at the moment we’re not in that division.”
