Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp reveals his interest in Brede Hangeland but admits that it will be "difficult" to sign the Fulham defender.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has revealed his interest in signing Fulham defender Brede Hangeland this month.

The 65-year-old is keen to add a centre-back to his squad to replace Ryan Nelsen, who will leave to manage Toronto FC at the end of February.

"I like him but I think it'll be difficult to get him," ESPN quotes him as saying.

"He's at Fulham but I like him as a central defender for sure. Ryan's going. It leaves us... he's a real leader for us, Ryan Nelsen, a big miss for us.

"If the players can help this squad, I'll change a few around if I can. But, if I can't find the ones that I think will make a bit of difference, I won't bother."

QPR are currently at the foot of the Premier League table with 14 points from 22 matches.
