Redknapp speaks about QPR's January transfer plans

Queens Park Rangers are not expecting to be too active in the January transfer window

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp says that the club have no plans to spend money in January.

Redknapp met with owner Tony Fernandes in Asia this week to formulate a strategy for the upcoming transfer window and it seems that loan moves will be the only ones sanctioned by the club. 

The R's may still be struggling against the drop in the Premier League, but they are determined not to stretch their budget too much and will look for short-term solutions to their current problems, rather than trying to tie up permanent deals.

"We're not looking to spend," Redknapp is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail. "If there's a loan or two out there we would be interested, that's where we are at. We spent some money in the summer, so we're not that far short.

"Hopefully we can find another striker to add to the ones we've got already, so that's an area we are looking at.

"In January it's always difficult to find players. We will see. There will be someone out there that can come and help us."

Redknapp's statement seems to rule out any move for FC Toronto striker Jermain Defoe or Stoke City target man Peter Crouch, both of whom have been linked to Loftus Road in the past week.

It does, however, suggest that a temporary move for Robbie Keane remains a possibility.

Keane has reportedly been on QPR's wishlist for some time and is thought to be available on a loan switch from his current side LA Galaxy, as the MLS season has finished. 

Redknapp's side have also been linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur winger Andros Townsend today.
