QPR manager Harry Redknapp is ready to sign a two-year contract extension.

Redknapp scotched speculation that Rangers owner Tony Fernandes was considering his future after two defeats in the Premier League.

"Tony's offered me an extension for two years and I'll sign it," he said. "I haven't read it, I probably won't read it, I'll just sign it."

QPR are seeking their first win after defeats by Hull, Spurs and League Two Burton Albion in the Capital One Cup.

Redknapp was speaking at a news conference ahead of Saturday's home game against Sunderland and said talk about his future was "absolute rubbish".

The 67-year-old added: "He's been asking me for a little while but we've just not got around to doing it. Maybe today if they put it in front of me, I'll sign it. If not, next week.

"I wanted to come back into the Premier League, I want to stay here and I will stay here this year - we'll stay up."

Former West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur manager Redknapp took over at Loftus Road in November 2012 on a two-and-a-half-year contract.
