Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp wants to sign loan-star Tom Carroll on a permanent basis, reports talkSPORT.

The midfielder is currently on loan at the West London outfit, and former Spurs boss Redknapp would like to make the deal permanent.

21-year-old Carroll will play for Redknapp for at least the season due to the terms of his deal, but Redknapp is hoping the wealth of talent available to Andre Villas-Boas will force him to let the young Englishman go.

Carroll's preferred position is in the centre where he can cause damage with his range of passing.

However, Spurs are already full to the brim with the likes of Christian Eriksen, Moussa Dembele, Lewis Holtby and Gylfi Sigurdsson all battling for a similar role.

And Redknapp, who guided Spurs to the Champions League whilst in charge, hopes this depth will work in QPR's favour.

He spoke highly of the England Under-21 international, saying he would look to build around him:

""If they decide at the end of the season that he isn't going to be in their plans and we can get in to the Premier League then he is the sort of player you would want to bring in and build your team around."

Redknapp did, however, concede that the ball is firmly in his old club's court.

""It depends on how Tottenham see it," Redknapp said. "He belongs to Tottenham so it would be down to them whether they want to sell him or keep him."

Carroll will be missing from QPR's weekend fixture against Millwall, having sustained an injury on international duty.
