West Brom assistant boss Kevin Keen does not expect QPR transfer targets Jonas Olsson and Peter Odemwingie to be affected by speculation over their future.

QPR have failed with £5m and £2m bids for Olsson and Odemwingie, respectively, and Keen believes both players will remain focused even if their future is unclear.

The Baggies tackle the Loftus Road club at the Hawthorns on Tuesday night in their FA Cup third round replay.

"Is QPR's interest unsettling? It is something out of my realm. But, if the boys you are on about play tomorrow night, I know they will be fantastic," Keen said.

"They are experienced and they will get on with it and do their best for West Brom. What do you think about Redknapp talking about Albion players? That is Harry being Harry.

"I think he can keep QPR up. I've been in certain scraps. I was at West Ham as first team coach in the Carlos Tevez year when West Ham won six out of eight to stay up.

"I think QPR can do the same. I think their home form is going to be important to them and if they pull out a result, like Reading did against us on Saturday, then they can get out of it."
