Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp has claimed that he will not sign a new deal at Loftus Road and may leave if his side are relegated from the Premier League this season.
The R’s are bottom of the table after seven games but they are level on points with Newcastle and Burnley ,who have also started the campaign in poor form.
The London club, 3.30 to finish the season bottom of the table, have only won one game so far and they were also dumped out of the Capital One Cup by Burton last month.
Redknapp saw his side lose 2-0 to West Ham United last weekend and the former Spurs boss has admitted that he now won’t sign a new deal after earlier suggesting he was poised to put pen to paper.
His current contract expires next summer and the 67-year-old is refusing to sign when the club are in a battle to stay in the top flight.
He told The Sun: “The truth is I told (owner) Tony Fernandes three or four weeks ago that I do not want a contract.
“We’ll see where QPR finish the season and take it from there. If we get relegated I wouldn’t expect to stay and I wouldn’t want to.
“I told Tony that I get on so well with him and know him so well I don’t want a contract. I don’t need one. If I’d wanted to sign the contract I could’ve done a long time ago.
“So we’ll see where we are come May, won’t we? I may have had enough by then and so might the people that run the club.”
