Redknapp wants to sign Keane on loan

first_imgQPR boss Harry Redknapp wants to sign Robbie Keane on loan.The 32-year-old striker, currently with LA Galaxy, is expected to make another temporary move back to England now the MLS season has finished.Last season he scored three goals in six league appearances during a loan spell with Aston Villa.Redknapp believes the Irishman, who played under him at Tottenham, could make a similar impact at Loftus Road.Redknapp wants new faces.Struggling Rangers are short of attacking options as Bobby Zamora is unavailable and Andrew Johnson’s season has been ended by a knee injury.“Robbie had a good season, scored goals and did well,” said Redknapp.“He’s a good pro and he would be the ideal type to have around for sure because he would give us something.”Redknapp also wants to bring in at least one centre-back, with the club planning to try again for Michael Dawson and Chris Samba.Dawson, who was also with Redknapp at Tottenham, opted to stay at Spurs rather than move to west London in the summer.Redknapp’s predecessor Mark Hughes was hopeful of persuading Dawson to make the switch in January and was also planning another approach for Samba.Congo defender Samba, 28, played under Hughes at Blackburn, while Redknapp expressed an interest in signing him while in charge at Spurs.After being pursued by Hughes, Samba opted to join Anzhi Makhachkala but is unsettled in Russia and believed to be open to the idea of a return to England.The same applies to Nicolas Anelka, whose future at Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua is unclear.Redknapp would be interested in signing Anelka if he becomes available and is currently giving a trial to the French striker’s former Chelsea team-mate Tal Ben Haim.Click here for the Wigan v QPR quizSee also:QPR boss expects to spend in JanuaryRedknapp ponders move for ex-Chelsea duo See also:Redknapp: No decision on Ben 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Chetan in second round of US Open badminton

first_imgChetan Anand continued his successful comeback when he defeated Jarome Vicolen 21-14, 21-13 to enter the second round of the US Open badminton championships at Orange, California, on Monday.This was the Hyderabadi’s second tournament after a fourmonth injury lay-off.Chetan AnandChetan said that he was moving well and also anticipating play early. “I am satisfied with my movement and what is more important is that I am able to catch the shuttle early. That means I am timing my shots well,” Chetan told Mail Today.Chetan will now meet 13th seed Bruce Leverdiz of France. “Bruce is a tough player and has all the shots in the book.Also I feel that since I have not played much competitive matches of late, I have to be at my best to defeat him. One thing I can draw inspiration from is the fact that I have never lost to him before,” said the Indian shuttler. If Chetan wins against Bruce, he may be in for an ever tougher challenge as he is likely to face top- seeded Indonesian Taufik Hidayat in the third round.Chetan feels that it will be one of the toughest matches he could expect.”Taufik is one of the greatest players of all time. He has a wonderful backhand and can hit winners from almost anywhere on the court. It would be very tough to win against him, especially in the form that he is now in,” he said. Also the fact that he has never managed to defeat the Indonesian in their career meetings seems to weigh on the Hyderabadi’s mind.advertisement”I have never beaten him in our four previous meetings. The best I did was taking a game off him in the Danish Super Series a couple of years back. Let’s see how it goes against him this time,” said Chetan.Meanwhile, the other Indians in the fray at the US Open-Periapalli Kashyap and Gurusai Dutt also advanced. While Gurusai scored a 21-7, 21-17 win over Jamaican Charles Pyne, Kashyap defeated Alex Tyjong of Brazil in straight games 21-10, 21-19. Kashyap will now run into David Obenstoer while Gurusai will cross swords with sixth seed Marc Zwiebler of Germany.- With inputs from PTIlast_img read more
