Gary O'Neil: Set to link up with Harry Redknapp at QPR

Gary O'Neil: Set to link up with Harry Redknapp at QPR

The 30-year-old had been a free agent, having been released by the Hammers at the start of June and will now step into the Championship as relegated QPR continue to rebuild their squad.

O'Neil will be teaming up once again with QPR boss Harry Redknapp, the duo having worked together previously at Portsmouth, for whom O'Neil made over 150 appearances between 1999 and 2007.

Having joined Middlesbrough in the summer of 2007, he went on to play over 100 times for Boro, before signing a two-and-a-half-year deal with West Ham in January 2011.

If his move to QPR is confirmed he would be following in the wake of Danny Simpson, Richard Dunne and Charlie Austin, who have already joined the west London club this summer.

QPR begin their Championship campaign at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday as they look to bounce back into the top flight at the first attempt.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
