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.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
