QPR manager Harry Redknapp has lifted the lid on much-rumoured deals for two Dutch internationals ahead of this weekend's Premier League kick-off.
Redknapp announced in his pre-match press conference for Saturday's clash with Hull City that the Hoops had made several enquiries for dutch duo Jonathan De Guzman and Leroy Fer.
Redknapp back to wheeling and dealing
The veteran coach revealed: "He's a good player [De Guzman]. Dutch international and played in the World Cup. It is someone we’re interested in.
“It is possible but Tony and Phil are dealing with that. I tell them who I like, if they can do the deals, fantastic.”
When asked specifically about Fer, Redknapp replied rather cryptically, "They’re both players we’ve made enquiries about.”
Premier League experience a key factor
Both De Guzman and Fer were part of Louis Van Gaal's successful Dutch squad at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
De Guzman, who most recently starred on loan at Swansea City, is said to be valued at around the £5 million mark by his parent club, Villarreal CF.
Fer may be a little more difficult to prize away from his club, Norwich City. They are said to want to a profit on the reported £4.5m they paid FC Twente for his services last summer.
No chance of a Song
However, Redknapp was also adamant that reported target Alex Song would not be arriving at Loftus Road any time soon. Song is said to be out of favour at his club, FC Barcelona, but remains hopeful of a move to a Champions League side.
Should Redknapp get his wish, the Dutch duo will be QPR's fifth and sixth arrival of the summer after Rio Ferdinand (free transfer), Stephen Caulker (£8 million from Cardiff), Jordon Mutch (£6 million from Cardiff) and Mauricio Isla (On loan from Juventus).
