QPR manager Harry Redknapp looks set to raid his former club Tottenham Hotspur with loan deals for Tom Carroll and Benoit Assou-Ekotto, according to the Express.

Never one to go quietly on transfer deadline day and despite making six summer signings following relegation to the Championship, Redknapp revealed last week that he was still looking for "three or four" late arrivals.

The left back spot is somewhat understaffed at Loftus Road; 35 year-old Clint Hill has been filling in that position in place of Yun Suk-Young who hasn't been a hit since his January move to England. 

Assou-Ekotto would certainly sort that problem out, the former Lens man has been a regular fixture in Spurs' defence in his seven years at White Hart Lane, but England Under 21 international Danny Rose has kept him out of the side so far this season.

Redknapp knows what to expect from the 29 year-old having worked with him throughout his time in charge in North London and his Champions League and international experience could certainly be of benefit for the Hoops who currently lie second in the Championship, as they aim for an immediate return to the top flight.

Tom Carroll is more of an unknown quantity having only made his Premier League debut last season, but the 21 year-old is held in high regard by manager Andre Villas-Boas and was called up to the England Under 21's over the summer.

However, with Spurs' summer spending spree topping £100 million, competition for Carroll's centre midfield position is likely to be intense and he will be desperate for a taste of first team action.

Carroll has been on loan twice before to Leyton Orient and Derby County, but a move to QPR- a side filled with quality and expectation could be perfect for the little playmaker.

This isn't the first time Redknapp has been back to Tottenham for players, in January, Andros Townsend impressed in a spell at Loftus Road that has since seen him gain a place in Tottenham's first eleven for the start of this season.
