QUEENS Park Rangers look certain to be the Premier League’s biggest players before tonight’s transfer deadline, with manager Harry Redknapp still working on several last-minute deals yesterday.
A defender and a striker remain Redknapp’s priorities, despite the arrival of South Korea left-back Yun Suk-Young following the successful bid to obtain a work permit.
Former Blackburn defender Christopher Samba could be next to sign after Rangers’ £10m bid activated a release clause in the Congo centre-back’s contract with Russian side Anzhi Makachkala.
Redknapp is also working on persuading Stoke to sell striker Peter Crouch, but is thought to have had a second bid for Fulham defender Brede Hangeland rejected.
The Cottagers, meanwhile, are close to sealing a loan deal for left-sided AC Milan and Holland star Urby Emmanuelson, who can play at full-back or in midfield.
Boss Martin Jol is also interested in a £5m move for Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone.
