Harry Redknapp’s representatives claim they have been contacted by Queens Park Rangers about the vacant manager’s role.

West London outfit axed Mark Hughes following 12 consecutive English Premier League games without a win, a run which has seen them fall to the foot of the table.

Unrest among fans had been building for some time, with speculation linking former Spurs man Redknapp as a potential replacement gathering pace.

QPR owner Tony Fernandes finally sacked Hughes on Friday, with the home defeat against fellow relegation candidates Southampton proving to be his last game in charge.

Redknapp’s representatives have confirmed reports the 65-year-old is being lined up as Hughes’ successor, claiming talks are set to commence in the near future.

“Contact has been made between QPR and us as Harry Redknapp’s representatives,” a spokesman for Paul Stretford’s Triple S Sports and Entertainment company told reporters.

“Talks will be beginning shortly.”

Former Southampton and Portsmouth manager Redknapp has been out of work since being relieved of his duties at White Hart Lane in June, apart from a brief role as an advisor to League One side Bournemouth.

Redknapp had also reportedly been in advanced talks to replace Oleg Blokhin as the Ukraine national team coach.

QPR, who are five points off the safety of 17th place, face a tough match away to Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday.
