Harry Redknapp: QPR boss weighing up a move for Marius Zaliukas

Sky Sports revealed earlier this week that free agent Zaliukas had linked up with QPR for training so that Redknapp could cast an eye over him.

Redknapp is in the market for a new centre-back as he seeks cover for Richard Dunne and Clint Hill and he admits he could offer Lithuanian Zaliukas a deal at Loftus Road if he impresses in training.

"He's been training, he's done well here," Redknapp said.

"He played in Scotland for a few years. He did well up there and we checked him out with some contacts that we've got up there and all the reports are good.

"The two areas of the team we are short in is striker and centre of defence.

"We've got two fit centre backs [Richard Dunne and Clint Hill] who are both in their thirties and we just have to hope that they stay fit.

"But playing Saturday and midweek up to Christmas is a long way to go, so if we need a bit of cover he's someone we've been looking at and it's a possibility."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
