QPR have opened talks with Tottenham over the possibility of taking strikers Emmanuel Adebayor and Harry Kane on loan.

Adebayor is yet to play for Spurs this season having been granted compassionate leave following his brother's death over the summer which forced him to miss much of pre-season.

Andre Villas-Boas confirmed that the Togolese forward, who was linked with a summer exit from White Hart Lane, was due to return to the club last Monday and would train with the reserves for the foreseeable future.

Now according to Metro, QPR are willing to offer him a way out of north London by taking him on loan for the rest of the season. The paper also reports that they would like to take fellow Spurs forward Harry Kane on loan.

Hoops boss Harry Redknapp was quick to raid his former club during the transfer window, and currently has both Benoit Assout-Ekotto and Tom Carroll on loan.

The former Portsmouth manager is without forwards Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora because of injury, and confirmed after his side's 0-0 draw against Brighton last night that he hopes to bring in attacking reinforcements before the end of the loan window.

Whether QPR will be successful in their attempts to land the Spurs forward remains unclear - he is amongst the highest earners at White Hart Lane and recently expressed a desire to stay with his current club.
