Redknapp confirms QPR working on Odemwingie & Livermore deals

The Rs boss is confident of securing a loan move for the Tottenham midfielder, but Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas was keen to stress that the deal had not yet been concluded
QPR manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed the club are lining up moves for West Brom forward Peter Odemwingie and Tottenham midfielder Jake Livermore this month.

Livermore broke into the Spurs first team under Redknapp, but his game time has been significantly more limited under new boss Andre Villas-Boas.

"Yeah, we're taking Livermore," Redknapp told reporters.

"We're doing a deal to take Jake [Livermore] on loan. I like Jake, I'm a big fan of Jake's. Good, young player. It will be good experience for him, I think."

But Tottenham's Portuguese boss was less committal on Livermore's potential loan move, stating that the deal was yet to be concluded.

"There’s nothing confirmed yet," Villas-Boas said after watching his side draw 0-0 against QPR. "I think when we announce it, it will be official from all three parties."

Redknapp – currently short of quality strikers in his squad – also confirmed his interest in bringing West Brom's Nigerian forward Odemwingie to Loftus Road, a player he has long admired.

"We made an enquiry for Odemwingie, yes," the QPR boss revealed.

"I don't know whether [chief executive] Philip Beard has put an offer in, but he was a player that we spoke about and he’s someone that I was interested in making an offer for.

"And there's every chance we have made an offer for him, but I haven't spoke to him [Beard] today. Probably an offer may well have gone in.

"I don't know what’s happened with the offer, if there is one. He's just a player that I spoke about, I said he was an interesting player, find out if West Brom would sell him and that's how I left it with the chief executive to try to find out for me."
