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.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
