QPR boss Harry Redknapp has stressed the need for the club to make more signings before the January transfer window shuts.
Redknapp watched new boy Loic Remy strike with his first shot in English football against West Ham yesterday, a game QPR drew 1-1.
The former Spurs manager does believe QPR can get out of trouble – they remain bottom on 15 points – but is sure fresh faces are needed for that to happen.
"We do need to make one or two signings in the right positions and let one or two lads go", he told the BBC.
"The squad needs improving – we saw that today with Remy’s goal. We couldn’t have scored a goal like that a few weeks ago, with that pace.
"If we had picked up three points he would have paid off a large chunk of his fee right there. But there are one or two other quality players around who we have been talking to.
"In the long-term we need a centre half, because Ryan Nelsen is going to be leaving us [to become Toronto manager] which is a big loss. But I am looking to improve the quality and strengthen other areas too."
Redknapp does still have ample time in which to raid the transfer market and the Englishman is a master in the art of deadline day deals.
QPR have just one more Premier League game left to play before the window slams shut, when Manchester City visit Loftus Road on 29th January.
New signings could then feature against Norwich on 2nd February, a home match Redknapp’s men must surely win to continue their push for survival.
