New Queens Park Rangers owner Tony Fernandes has wasted no time in attempting to strength Neil Warnock’s squad. It is understood that Rangers have submitted a £4million offer to West Ham for Scott Parker. This was announced just hours after the Malaysian Airline entrepreneur confirmed the takeover that sees Fernandes take almost 66% of shares in the club from Bernie Ecclestone, whilst former vice-chairman Amit Bhatia has returned to his old role, holding the remaining 33% of shares.
Both Fernandes and Bhatia have said they are in full support of manager Neil Warnock, and are prepared to supply him with the funds needed to keep QPR in the Premier League., with Scott Park their first target. However it is unknown whether West Ham will accept the £4million fee for their England International as the club still seem to be adamant on their £8million valuation of the player.
However Fernandes, who witnessed QPR’s return to the Premier League start with a dismal 4-0 defeat at home to Bolton, is eager to bring quality to Loftus Road as it is also understood that Rangers have made an enquiry to Liverpool over the availability of defender Philipp Degen.
