Harry Redknapp eyes reunion with Joe Cole at QPR

Former England international has found chances limited at Liverpool

Liverpool outcast Joe Cole is a loan target for the new Queen’s Park Rangers manager, Harry Redknapp.

The 31-year-old midfielder has found first-team opportunities hard to come by at Anfield under Brendan Rodgers and Redknapp, who handed Cole his professional debut in 1998, will look to secure a deal in January until the end of the season. Cole has made just seven appearances so far this season for Liverpool.

A stumbling block in the deal for  QPR, who sit bottom on the Premier League table, may be Cole’s £90,000-a-week wages.
