Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has urged Tim Sherwood to make a decision concerning Tom Carroll's immediate future as the Tottenham boss considers recalling his on-loan star.

The England under-21 midfielder has made fourteen appearances for promotion-chasing QPR, but Spus wouldn't permit him to feature in the FA Cup tie at Everton.

Spurs have been hit with injuries to the likes of Sandro, Paulinho and Gylfi Sigurdsson and may require his services.

Redknapp, however, wants Sherwood to make his mind up sooner rather than later so he can plan ahead for the coming months.

"I’m not sure what's happening," said the Loftus Road manager

"It’s up to Tim Sherwood what he wants to do. He likes him an awful lot and has been excellent for us.

"I haven’t spoken to Tim for a week or so, but if he wants to take him back I need to know because we need time to try and find somebody else.

"I wouldn’t want to leave it until the last minute [of the window]. It’s a difficult time of year to find players."

Sherwood, on the other hand, is willing to let some players leave White Hart Lane.

"Yes, absolutely," the Tottenham manager said when asked if he was willing to do business.

"As long as they're the players I don't want to take us forwards, then I'm happy (to sell them)."
