  • QPR boss: Taarabt will be sold and not loaned if he's going

    Adel Taarabt looks set to make his first QPR Premier League start since May 2013 against Sunderland today - while his boss insists he will not be allowed to go out on loan.

    The Moroccan international was all but cast into the wilderness a second time pre-season, but was the one bright spark as the lights went out on a Rangers Capital Cup bid midweek.

    Harry Redknapp reckoned not a lot on his team-mates as they exited 1-0 to League Two Burton, but thought Taarabt’s performance was the best of a bad bunch.

    With a season-long injury to Alejandro Faurlin and the distinct possibility Armand Traore is on his way to Crystal Palace, Rangers find themselves short in midfield.

    However, the manager insists the player will not be allowed to leave on loan to AC Milan a second time before the transfer window closes on Monday.

    Instead, the Italian giants, will have to cough up the £5million buy-out clause if they want him.

    Harry said: “He did ever so well to get though 90 minutes at Burton, and he’ll be involved in this game.

    “He’s probably waiting until the last moment for Milan to come and take him on loan. The owners have said that’s not going to happen. He’s got a buy-out clause, but if he finally gets his head right after 26 years, or however old he is, then he’s going to be a great asset to us.”

  • Transfers: Taarabt still holding out for Milan move

    By Football Italia staff

    Adel Taarabt has conceded that he is still holding out for a move to Milan this summer.

    The Morocco international was on loan at San Siro for the second half of last term, but has so far failed to attract the attentions of the Rossoneri this time around.

    Pippo Inzaghi’s side have completed the signing of Fernando Torres on a two-year loan deal, with the Queens Park Rangers trequartista now thought to be surplus to Milan’s requirements.

    But the 25-year-old has insisted that he would still ‘love’ to represent the club again.

    “I love Milan, and I was really happy there. I hope to return as long as there is a chance of it happening,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

    “I will always support Milan even if the transfer doesn't happen.

    “I hope that Milan can return where they belong: playing and maybe winning Champions League.”
