Neil Warnock expects QPR to do plenty of business in January
Neil Warnock has revealed Queens Park Rangers are looking to make "three or four signings" in the January transfer window
Neil Warnock expects Queens Park Rangers to secure the signings of “three or four players” during the imminent January transfer window.
The Londoners recruited 13 players over the summer, including captain Joey Barton and Shaun Wright-Phillips as Tony Fernandes completed his takeover of the club in August.
And Warnock has revealed that he is working with the QPR owner to strengthen the squad in the coming weeks.
“I will be looking to bring in at least three or four players,” said Warnock. “We are working hard, and I am having many conference calls with the chairman Tony Fernandes over who we may be able to bring in.
“It changes day to day as players become available that you think you can buy or loan in, but there are areas we want to improve on and I think we will get the players we want.
“When you play like that on TV, it can only help. London is a good pull for foreigners as well as English players and it’s an exciting time. We have a drawing power and the way we play, if I were a player I would be excited.
“If I can get some good business done then what a great end of season we can have, I’m looking forward to it.”
The 63-year-old manager admitted that losing Adel Taarabt to the African Nations Cup will be a blow, with the 22-year-old potentially unavailable for up to four weeks depending on Morocco’s success at the tournament.
“I thought Adel did well again [against Swansea City], I thought he also did well against Sunderland in the second half,” said Warnock.
“He is getting fitter and fitter and it is just a shame he is going to be away at the African Nations Cup, he will be heading there after the FA Cup game [at MK Dons on 7 January] I think.”
