QPR manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed his interest in bringing Nicolas Anelka back to west London.

The 33-year-old French international left rivals Chelsea to join Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua this time last year. However, Anelka looks set to end his time at the club following a pay dispute and Redknapp has confirmed his interest in bringing him to Loftus Road.

"He is a player that is of interest to anybody," the Rs boss said. "I think he is finishing in China so he is available. He is a top player so he is a player we would be interested in, but whether we could afford to get anywhere near I him I am not sure."
