London Informer/Paul Warburton - QPR relieved after Spurs confirm Taarabt loan agreement
- QPR have been assured they can keep Adel Taarabt until the end of the season - unless a Premiership club comes in for the on-loan Tottenham forward in January.
- The Morocco-born player scored a peach of a goal in Saturday's 4-0 demolition of Preston - and there were fears Spurs would want him back as soon as possible.
- But boss Harry Redknapp will only require Taarabt to return if the Premiership club gets offers from another top-flight outfit - that, and a fee of around £3million.
- A Rangers source said: "QPR were promised Adel until the end of the season - and it stays that way.
- "But if there was another Premiership club wanting him in the transfer window - sadly for Rangers it would suit both Spurs and the player."
- But Taarabt made it plain this week he would rather play for Rs if they get into the Premiership.
- He said: "If we get promoted then why not? Although I have got three years of my contract left with Tottenham my dream is to play in the Premiership."
- Two weeks ago the midfielder vowed to never play for QPR again after fans booed him in the 5-2 win over Barnsley - and he angrily gestured back at them.
- He said: "The chairman told me to relax, forget it, and I showed everybody what I can do. And yes, I love nutmegging other players on the pitch. It's my favourite thing to do, and has been since I was very young." London Informer

- Earlier re Taarabt/QPR Future

- QPR boss Jim Magilton admits his in-form side must keep their feet on the ground if they are to maintain a genuine promotion push.
- Rangers have scored 13 goals in their last three home games to see off Barnsley, Preston and Reading.
- But while Magilton is enjoying their fine run, he knows no prizes are given out in October.
- "We're playing with confidence. The flow in the side is very good," said Magilton.
- "We've shown real positivity in everything we've done. The players are believing in what John (Gorman) and I are bringing.
- "If we still produce these performances in April, then the players have grasped it." Sporting Life
