New Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has refused to rule out a January move for former Premier League star Nicolas Anelka as the countdown to the opening of the transfer window is in full swing.

Anelka only joined current club Shanghai Shenhua last January, but the risky move to China doesn’t seem to have paid off and a return to Europe and possibly England seems on the cards.

Redknapp has been asked about dozens of possible New Year signings since he took over from Mark Hughes at Loftus Road last month and with his reputation of thriving in the transfer market it is clear that Rangers are expected to add to their underachieving squad in January.

A move back to London may suit the former French international who enjoyed successful spells at Arsenal and Chelsea, but Redknapp knows that a number of clubs will be interested in the striker and so a deal to come to Rangers may be unlikely.

“I don’t know what the situation is with him,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“If he is available he is a player who I think would be of interest to people.

“We will sit down and the owners will have a look at the situation.

“Maybe we won’t have to spend any money. Maybe we can pick up a couple of loans. It’s a case of knowing who is around, knowing who is available and who can do a job for you.”
