QPR boss flys to Morocco in bid to sign Spurs star
Jun 24 2010 By Paul Warburton

Adel Taarabt

QPR boss Neil Warnock took the extraordinary step of flying to Morocco this week in a bid to persuade Adel Taarabt his future is at Rangers.

Warnock is braving the 35-degree heat and 3,000-mile round-trip to Marrakesh to meet the midfielder in his own country following his succession of eye-catching performances last season.

The 21-year-old joined Rs on-loan for the second time last August from Tottenham, and during his 41 appearances in hoops scored a wonder goal against Preston in October – thus coming second in the Football League’s goal-of-the-season competition.

Warnock admitted he stood a better chance of talking Taarabt into a pemanent deal at Loftus Road if he met him face-to-face.

He said: “It’s difficult to discuss things over the phone, and I want to let Tarbs know we’re serious.

“It won’t be a question of a loan deal – and if he believes that we’re a club who will play in the Premiership the season after this one, then we need to sort something out with Spurs.”

Taarabt would cost a minimum £2million, and has already claimed he is a target for top clubs in Spain. But Warnock reckons he will remind the Moroccan international he is better off at a club that really wants him.

The manager added: “Does he want to jump into the unknown and languish in the reserves perhaps? Or does he want to play for a club that believes in him, and can further his career?” Ealing Gazette
