Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has enquired about the availability of Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe but admits there is only a slim chance of bringing him to Loftus Road.
Redknapp is desperate to sign a forward after Loic Remy completed his season-long loan move to Newcastle United earlier this week.
QPR can still call upon Bobby Zamora and Andy Johnson, who scored in the 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday on the opening day of the Championship season, but Redknapp is keen to have more options as he looks to secure an instant return to the top flight.
"I'd love to have Jermain," Redknapp told the Evening Standard. "We made an enquiry but at the moment he's not available. We're nowhere near anything. There is a small chance of it happening."
Tottenham have bolstered their attacking options with the addition of club record signing Roberto Soldado who will likely be first choice under Ander Villas-Boas in the upcoming season after arriving in a deal worth £26m.
With Villas-Boas preferring to play just one striker, Defoe may find his opportunities somewhat limited but it remains to be seen whether he would be prepared to leave Tottenham in order to secure more regular first team football.
Meanwhile, Redknapp played down speculation linking him with a move for West Bromwich Albion striker Peter Odenwingie and admitted that Estudiantes forward Duvan Zapata "may be going elsewhere".
It was also confirmed today that midfielder Park Ji-Sung had agreed a deal to join PSV Eindhoven on a season-long loan.
The 32 year old represented the Dutch side between 2003-2005 before joining Manchester United where he won four Premier League titles, three FA Cup's and the Champions League in 2008.
Park struggled to find his best form for QPR last season as he failed to score a single goal in his 25 appearances for the club.
