Harry Redknapp has pledged to scour the world to find the fresh blood which could rescue QPR's season.

After watching his side gain a fortunate 1-1 draw against West Brom in front of just 8,984 fans at Loftus Road in the FA Cup third round, the boss of the Barclays Premier League's bottom club revealed he faces losing key defender Ryan Nelsen in the January transfer window.

Nelsen, 35, has been linked with a move to the MLS in America, potentially with former club DC United, and Redknapp believes if he goes it would be a major blow to QPR's survival hopes in the Premier League. Redknapp said: "Nelsen is very important to us, a fantastic leader, a top player. But he has been offered a job in America."
