Premier League's QPR targeting MLS offseason loan deals

Queens Park Rangers are languishing at the bottom of the Barclays Premier League, and newly hired manager Harry Redknapp needs some reinforcements if he's going to stave off relegation.

Where does he turn? Major League Soccer.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Redknapp will target MLS players for offseason loans, most notably the LA Galaxy's Robbie Keane, who played for Redknapp at Tottenham Hotspur before the Irish striker moved to Southern California.

"The MLS market is one that we've got to look at," Redknapp said. "Robbie's a good shout. He probably would be an interesting player.

"I haven't spoken to him yet, no, but he would be an interesting player. He's a good pro and he would be the ideal type to have around for sure because he would give us something."

Other names mentioned include the New York Red Bulls Tim Cahill and the Galaxy's Landon Donovan, though the latter seems like a long shot given his soccer existential angst in recent months.

QPR are winless in 16 matches so far this season. They are eight points away from safety after a 2-2 draw at Wigan Athletic on Saturday.
