Glenn Hoddle to join Queens Park Rangers as Harry Redknapp's number two?

Former England and Chelsea manager Glenn Hoddle is to join QPR, with Harry Redknapp keen on him becoming their first-team coach, reports suggest.

Glenn Hoddle will join Harry Redknapp's backroom staff at Queens Park Rangers, reports suggest.

The former England and Chelsea boss has been in talks with QPR since last month and a deal is now close to being finalised, according to the Sunday People.

Hoddle has not managed since he left Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2006, but is said to be ready for a return to the Premier League, even if it is as an assistant manager.

He endured a tough time at Molineux, failing to take the Black Country club in the right direction and resigning as a result.

His role raises questions about Redknapp's long-term future, with the Loftus Road hierarchy reportedly seeing Hoddle as a successor to Redknapp should he retire or fail to keep the Loftus Road club in the Premier League.
