QPR boss Neil Warnock is weighing up a January move for Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong according to the Daily Mirror.

The 25-year-old Frenchman almost moved to Loftus Road on transfer deadline day, but the plug was pulled on the switch at the final hour after Spurs failed to land Bolton's Gary Cahill.

Harry Redknapp has made no secret of his desire to renew interest in Cahill when the transfer window reopens in January, and it is believed that his potential White Hart Lane move will again determine whether or not Bassong will be allowed to leave Tottenham.

Spurs are currently short on defensive numbers after vice-captain Michael Dawson suffered a setback in his recovery from an Achilles injury, and Redknapp will not want to put too much pressure on club captain Ledley King who continues to be monitored carefully.


 

Either way, QPR will be looking to make further acquisitions in a bid to strengthen their squad and consolidate themselves in the Barclays Premier League.

"We have already begun talking about what we are going to do in January and have a number of ideas," said Warnock. "There are so many things that are possibilities and if I ask for a certain player, the board will support me.

"At the moment, a striker and a defender are my two priorities. We are looking abroad, as well as in this country."

QPR were also linked with moves for Tottenham pair Alan Hutton and Jermaine Jenas, before both players opted instead to join Aston Villa, the latter of which will return to Spurs at the end of his loan spell.

"We haven't got a big enough squad," Warnock continued. "But we just have to keep going now until January and look to improve again."
