QPR boss discusses Cole move

It has been quite a few days for Neil Warnock, with the takeover of Queens Park Rangers by Tony Fernandes quickly followed by a first win of the season away against Everton.

Tommy Smith's goal was enough to ensure QPR returned to London with all three points, and increased the feelgood factor currently surrounding the club.

Fernandes has certainly wasted no time in attempting to make an impact at Loftus Road following his purchase of the club on Thursday, with the Malaysian businessman credited with an offer for West Ham midfielder Scott Parker.

The Hoops have also been linked heavily with Liverpool's Joe Cole in recent weeks and now, with significant funds behind them, could turn reported interest into a genuine approach.

And Warnock says QPR would now be in a position to afford a fair portion of Cole's wages, should he join the club on loan, something that would have been unachievable before the arrival of Fernandes.


"We will not just spend money for the sake of it," said Warnock. "We have to get quality players in to the club.

"Joe Cole? We can probably afford 30 or 40 per cent of his wages now. The chairman knows all my targets and we are discussing them.

"This man coming in, Tony Fernandes, is a dream come true. You do not often get the opportunity to look at players I have only dreamed about. I am in Utopia."
