West London latest: Redknapp interested in Zaha, Magath alienates Mitroglou

The latest Queens Park Rangers and Fulham transfer news.


Harry Redknapp has declared his interest in loaning Wilfried Zaha from Manchester United.

The QPR boss says his side are still allowed to sign two more players on loan from the Premier League, with the Rs having loaned Mauricio Isla and Eduardo Vargas - both of whom play for Serie A clubs.

And Redknapp admits Zaha would 'certainly be of interest' if Man United were keen on sending the the 21-year-old out on loan.

"We've still got two loans that we can use from the Premier League if we want to. If they [Manchester United] were to loan him [Zaha], if he did become available I'm sure he would be a player a lot of clubs would be interested in," Redknapp told reporters on Friday.

"If we thought he was available he would certainly be of interest."

Reports suggest Louis van Gaal would like to send Zaha out on loan, with the winger having spent the second half of last season at Cardiff City.

The England U21 international struggled there, however, and has not hit the same heights since leaving Crystal Palace.


According to the Daily Mirror, Kostas Mitroglou may never play for Fulham again.

The Greece international wants to leave the club - but not for on-the-pitch reasons.

Indeed, Felix Magath's recent criticism of the striker is said to be the last straw for Mitroglou, who signed for the Cottagers in January for £12 million.

Fulham are believed to want to cut their wage bill and would be happy to offload the 26-year-old.

However, there is a strong possibility that no bidders will come in for Mitroglou, meaning the club will continue to pay his wages without playing him in their current situation.

Magath similarly alienated former club captain Brede Hangeland, who publicly criticised the German after being forced out of the club.

Magath's former chairman at Bayern Munich warned of these very problems when he was given the Fulham job.
