Watch Arsenal legend Thierry Henry ‘sign’ for Harry Redknapp’s QPR
At least one Redknapp is getting a deal over the line on deadline day!
Jamie Redknapp provided frustrated Queens Park Rangers fans with some relief on deadline day after he coerced Arsenal legend Thierry Henry into signing for the Hoops.
Jamie, whose father Harry is in charge at Loftus Road, jokingly got Arsenal’s record goal-scorer to put pen to paper on a contract after brief negotiations, although unfortunately for the west London club, it isn’t legally binding.
The pair played up to the Sky Sports News cameras, although Henry looked rather circumspect about the prospect of lining up for the R’s, who haven’t won an away game in the Premier League this season.
QPR have been linked with another former Arsenal striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, although a deal for the Togo international has yet to materialise ahead of Monday night’s 23.00 GMT deadline.
The London outfit’s owner Tony Fernandes proved to be something of a deadline day Grinch on Monday morning, taking to Twitter to tell his followers that he would not be opening his chequebook before Monday’s deadline.
