QPR turn attention away from Tottenham midfielder

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp does not expect Rangers approach for Livermore

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has played down suggestions that QPR are planning to make a bid for central midfielder Jake Livermore.

Rangers were linked with the 22-year-old as Neil Warnock looks to strengthen his squad by bringing in loan signings from the top six or seven Premier League clubs.

But Redknapp is keen to keep Livermore at White Hart Lane after fellow midfielders Scott Parker and Sandro both suffered injuries over the New Year period.

“I don’t think they’d be in for the kids here, no. I’d be surprised if QPR were going to take kids from here,” said Redknapp.

“I wouldn’t think he’d be looking to take kids with no experience. I haven’t spoken to Neil about anyone but if he’s looking for anyone to strengthen his team up I don’t think he’d be looking to take gambles on kids.”
