Anelka on Redknapp's radar

Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp admits he would be delighted if the club can lure Nicolas Anelka back to the Premier League.

The 33-year-old striker left west London rivals Chelsea to join Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua almost a year ago.

But Anelka looks set to end his time in Far East following a pay dispute, and Redknapp has confirmed his interest in bringing him to Loftus Road.

"He is a player that is of interest to anybody," said Redknapp as he prepares for QPR's trip to Newcastle. "I think he is finishing in China so he is available.

"It is what you can do, whether you can afford these players, what they are looking for, whether they are reasonable, whether you can deal with them and most importantly whether you think they can do the job you want.

"He is a top player so he is a player we would be interested in, but whether we could afford to get anywhere near I him I am not sure.

"It depends, as I say, just how expensive the whole package comes to. If it is within reason, he is a player that could certainly improve your team. There is no doubt about it."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
