Transfer News: QPR manager Harry Redknapp is a fan of Tottenham youngster Adam Smith, who is currently on loan at Millwall.

The 21-year-old is wanted by Premier League clubs after impressing at the Lions, but it appears that QPR is not one of them.

“I like little Smithy but he’s on loan at Millwall,” Redknapp said.

“It’s another loan and you can only have two loans and I’ve got Fabio on loan.

“You’re only allowed two loans – that’s the trouble.

Smith’s loan finishes this month and the Lions are yet to speak to Spurs over an extension.

“His loan finishes on 25th of January,” Jackett said. “We haven’t spoken to Spurs [about an extension].

Millwall are facing a difficult fight to keep hold of the full back as Tottenham head coach Andre Villas-Boas revealed that there has been interest in Smith from Premier League clubs.

“There are a couple of Premier League clubs interested [in Smith],” the Portuguese boss said.

“We are assessing if it’s a real possibility to give a different challenge to the player.”

Smith has made 13 appearances for Millwall during his loan spell. The 21-year-old scored the winner against Bristol City on New Year’s Day.
