Niko Kranjcar: Thought to be attracting interest from former boss Redknapp

Croatia international Kranjcar played under former Spurs boss Redknapp at White Hart Lane after being brought to North London by the manager from Pompey in 2009.

He departed for Ukraine last summer after falling down the pecking order at Spurs, with injuries hindering his progress.

Now Redknapp is understood to be targeting another reunion with the 28-year-old attacking midfielder.

QPR have already struck in this month's transfer market as they look to escape relegation from the Premier League this season, bringing in Loic Remy from Marseille.

Redknapp is also understood to be interested in signing Sissoko but Sky Sports understands the Toulouse midfielder's preference is to join Newcastle United.

Meanwhile, QPR's pursuit of Peter Odemwingie remains ongoing and the West Bromwich Albion striker is said to be keen on a move but there has been no new bid.

However, QPR are preparing an improved offer for another West Brom player, Jonas Olsson, in their continued chase of the centre-back.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
