Harry Redknapp is keen to bring Liverpool's out of favour Oussama Assaidi to Queens Park Rangers on a season long loan move.

The Moroccan winger was one of Brendan Rodgers' first signings at Anfield last summer but struggled to impose himself on the manager's first team, failing to start a single Premier League game as he largely featured in cup and European outings.

The 24-year-old has been linked with moves to Sporting Lisbon and PSV Eindhoven, but QPR could offer the winger the chance to remain in English football, if they can convince him to drop down to the Championship.

"I am interested in trying to loan Assaidi from Liverpool, but I'm not quite sure where we are at with that one at the moment," the former Tottenham Hotspur boss told a press conference.

With Brendan Rodgers strengthening his attacking options this summer with Spanish duo Luis Alberto and Iago Aspas, Assaidi is likely to be further deprived of first team opportunities in the new campaign.

Liverpool's lack of European football this season suggests the Moroccan international's chances are likely to come in the club's low key cup outings, and with Raheem Sterling likely to be joined by academy graduate Jordan Ibe in the first team squad, Assaidi may feel a move away from Anfield will present his best opportunities for first team football.

Having offloaded Loic Remy, Adel Taraabt, Christopher Samba amongst others this summer, Redknapp is keen to continue building a side capable of gaining promotion straight back to the Premier League.

The QPR boss yesterday revealed his desire to bring his former players Jermain Defoe and Scott Parker to Loftus Road, but admitted the club's chances of signing the Tottenham pair were hopeful at best.

"I think it would be wishful thinking regarding Defoe," Redknapp said. "I've signed him so many times, but it will be a very difficult one for us.

"Everybody would love Scott Parker in their team - but, again, I think it will be very difficult to get him here."
