Former Queens Park Rangers defender Steve Wicks has urged Hoops manager Harry Redknapp to snap up Tottenham Hotspur’s Michael Dawson in the January transfer window.

The 28-year-old came close to completing a switch to Loftus Road in the summer but the former Nottingham Forest star failed to agree personal terms with the Hoops.

The England international has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in André Villas-Boas’ first-team since the close of the summer transfer window.

Redknapp has openly admitted his admiration for Dawson, who he worked with at White Hart Lane, and Wicks believes QPR need to sign a top-class centre-half if they want to avoid the drop.

“I just wish we’d signed Michael Dawson in the summer. He was the player we’ve missed this season,” Wicks told talkSPORT.

“I think QPR need a centre-back, an experienced defender that’s going to organise at the back.

“Harry Redknapp will get money to spend in January. Tony Fernandes [the QPR chairman] has really backed the club, he’s put millions in and I think he’s desperate to stay in the Premier League. Harry will definitely get handed a warchest with a few quid in it.”
