Harry Redknapp could return to his former employers in the New Year, as he looks to bolster his attacking options for Queens Park Rangers.
The Loftus Road club were held to a 0-0 draw at Watford on Sunday afternoon, which is the fourth time in five matches they have failed to bother the scoreboard. This has seen their bid for an instant return to the Premier League hit the skids, and they now enter the new calendar year in fourth place and five points behind leaders Leicester City.
Redknapp’s situation has hardly been helped by an injury to leading goalscorer Charlie Austin, who has 10 goals from 21 league matches, as he battles against a hamstring injury. It is no surprise, then, that the Hoops manager has confirmed he intends to enter the market for a new striker when the window reopens on Wednesday.
“We had Charlie out and Bobby Zamora, while Andy Johnson can play half a game maximum,” said Redknapp. “We are looking to bring in another striker in January if we can. At least we are nearly at January now and may be able to get someone in.”
According to Sky Sports, Redknapp could bolster his attacking options by making contact with former club Tottenham Hotspur for Harry Kane. The 20-year-old has already had a loan spell in the Championship with Leicester this season, and the White Hart Lane club could be willing to let him leave on another temporary spell to further add to his experience.
