QPR have launched a bid to sign Tottenham's Tom Carroll and Benoit Assou-Ekotto on loan, according to reports from Press Association Sport.

Left-back Assou-Ekotto is out of favour at Tottenham and is yet to feature in any of the club's games so far this season.

Carroll, meanwhile, has seen his first-team opportunities diminish following the £100 million spending spree that has seen midfielders Christian Eriksen, Erik Lamela, Etienne Capoue and Paulinho arrive at White Hart Lane.

Former Spurs boss Harry Redknapp now wants to be reunited with the pair as he aims to take his new club back in to the Barclays Premier League.He faces stiff competition for Carroll, though, as two top-flight clubs are understood to be interested in taking the England Under-21 international on loan

Redknapp has also been linked with a move for Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor, but it is understood that the west London club have not made a bid for the Togo striker due to his huge wages.


Holloway confident of further additions

Crystal Palace manager Ian Holloway has not been slow in strengthening the squad since winning promotion against Watford at Wembley, with Reading winger Jimmy Kebe becoming the Eagles' 11th summer signing at the weekend

Royals defender Adrian Mariappa is reported to be on the verge of completing his transfer to south-east London, while Arsenal's Nicklas Bendtner is another linked, although the Denmark striker's wage demands could yet be an issue.

Speaking after the win over Sunderland, Holloway said:

"We are going to smash some things and the chairman and the other directors really want to have a go... It takes a really big squad in this division to have a chance so hopefully we can add four or maybe five by Monday."

The 22-year-old came through the Terriers youth system and gained regular experience in the Championship.

Hunt is set to add much-needed cover for Ian Holloway's side, who recorded their first Barclays Premier League win on Saturday by beating Sunderland 3-1 at Selhurst Park.
