QPR manager Harry Redknapp says he plans to stay at the relegated club despite speculation about his future.

Redknapp, who took over last November, recently indicated that he would walk away if the R's board did not allow him to sign the players he wanted.

But he said: "I am committed to QPR. I want to do well for the club and I want to take it back where it belongs - in the Premier League.

"It will be a difficult task but a challenge I am excited about."

Redknapp was frustrated after failing to convince the club's Malaysian owners to sanction the signing of former England left-back Wayne Bridge, who last week joined Reading.

The ex-Tottenham boss has a number of other transfer targets, while several of last season's squad are expected to leave Loftus Road this summer.

"I know the kind of players we need and I'm working with [chief executive] Philip [Beard] and the owners to get deals over the line," Redknapp told QPR's website.external-link

"We're in constant dialogue. We're all on the same page and want to bring success to the club.

"We're trying to bring the right types of lads into the squad - players who have the right mentality, ability and character to get us out of this division.

"I know the game and know what QPR need to get back into the Premier League."
