The sight of Harry Redknapp rolling down his window warms many a heart on transfer deadline day, but if the Queens Park Rangers boss has his way, he’ll be watching from afar when Jim White starts bellowing this year.

Redknapp, who pulled off his fair share of last-ditch acquisitions with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, is hard at work plotting an assault on the transfer market, but accepts he’s no longer in a position to wait until the final knockings.

“The problem is we really need to do any business by the start of January. It’s no good us waiting until the last day. It’s too late. We’re going to be finished by then,” he said.

“Daniel [Levy] will be ringing up at 10 o’clock on deadline day offering you a three for one deal. He’ll offer you a couple of players he can’t give away. We won’t be waiting for that deadline night.”

Redknapp famously took exception to being a described a wheeler-dealer and in fact, he’s not nearly as keen on the haggling lark as some might suggest.

“There’s nothing nicer than being at a club where you don’t need any players. That’s a lovely feeling, to think you’ve got a good squad and don’t need anybody,” he added.

“When you’re in this situation you need to do something, so we’re trying to improve the squad. It’s nonstop trying to come up with names that might be of interest and that we might be able to get.”
