Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has no intention of selling winger Shaun Wright-Phillips this winter, he told the club’s official site.
The former England winger has failed to make much of an impact at Loftus Road this season in the Championship, making only nine appearances most of which from the bench.
Sunderland have been linked with a move for the 32 year old who would jump the chance at another shot at the Premier League.
Others such as West Ham, Cardiff and Newcastle are rumoured to be interested in Wright Phillips but Redknapp wants to keep the experienced winger to aid Rangers’ push for promotion back to the Premier League.
“I have no problems with Shaun Wright-Phillips,” Redknapp said.
“He still has an important part to play with us. He is not a player I am looking to move on.”
Redknapp is trying to fund his own spending this January with a striker the main target, so if offers came in for SWP they would be considered
