Redknapp: January's difficult

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp believes the January transfer window is a 'very difficult' time to make new signings.

Redknapp is widely expected to bring in fresh faces this month in an attempt to lift QPR off the bottom of the Premier League table and out of the relegation zone.

The likes of Joe Cole, Nicolas Anelka and Loic Remy have all been linked with moves to Loftus Road, but Redknapp has already expressed his concern about panic buying.

He is not planning any early deals following the opening of the window, with QPR meeting Chelsea on Wednesday and then facing West Brom in the FA Cup third round on Saturday.

"I wouldn't have thought so," Redknapp told Sky Sports News when asked if he would be making any signings on New Year's Day. "We're not doing anything really, we'll just wait and see.

"We've got a game tomorrow against Chelsea, then a cup game and we've got a little break after that, so we'll see what happens.

"It's difficult at this time of year, it's very difficult to make signings.

"Who's going to let people go? People hold you to ransom if they know you're desperate. It's a very difficult time."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
