Harry Redknapp was certain about his intentions of signing most of his transfer window targets on the deadline day as he managed to secure the services of Guillherme Dellatorre, Kevin Doyle, Will Keane and Aaron Hughes.
There were also attempts on signing Inter Milan’s Ishak Belfodil but the deal could never be completed. “We tried to get a lad from Inter Milan but that fell through,” Redknapp said.
The head coach of QPR also went out and spoke his delight on signing Aaron Hughes as he praised the player considering him to be a versatile player capable of playing on different defensive spots.
“He’s versatile. He can play centre-back or right-back and he’s good enough to walk this division.”
He was also happy to bring on board Dellatorre, and added: “He is a young player from Brazil. I would be a liar if I said I knew a lot about him but he has appeared on the radar and is probably one for the future, he may be now but he is here now and my scouts have seen him.”
Redknapp confirmed that Eduardo had been talked about and said: “He’s a name we’ve been looking at. He was mentioned to us and it’s not gone any further than that. At the moment there isn’t a lot of time to do much else and we’ll have to wait and see.”
While QPR failed to sign Ishak Belfodil from Inter Milan, Livorno managed to get the player on a loan deal which will last until the end of the current campaign. Harry Redknapp initially wanted to sign the Algerian footballer on a loan deal but later on a permanent deal if they manage to get promoted to the Premier League.
