Harry Redknapp is unsure whether Peter Odemwingie will join QPR this week after seeing a second bid for the forward rejected by West Brom.
After sanctioning Djibril Cisse's loan move to Al-Gharafa, Redknapp is keen to bring in another striker and has made the Nigeria international his main target.
The 31-year-old saw his transfer request rejected on Friday before taking to Twitter to express his dismay at West Brom's continued determination to keep him at the Hawthorns.
Redknapp admits the public nature of the Odemwingie saga has not been ideal but says the ball is in West Brom's court over whether a deal goes through before the close of the window on Thursday.
When asked about the forward, he said: "I don't know. It's different for West Brom, but it's not worked out in an ideal way. It's been too public. I'm sure West Brom aren't happy but we made an enquiry and it got public. It's up to them."
The former Spurs manager is also keen on Odemwingie's team-mate Jonas Olsson and Fulham's Brede Hangeland, but admits they're unlikely to move to Loftus Road this week.
He added: "No their clubs don't want to sell them."
Meanwhile, QPR are yet to receive any offers for Jamie Mackie, who has emerged as a target for Fulham and Norwich City.
