QPR boss Harry Redknapp has dismissed suggestions that Emmanuel Adebayor and Yossi Benayoun could be set to join him at Loftus Road.

Adebayor has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs following the summer-signing of fellow striker Roberto Soldado, while Benayoun is a free agent after his contract at Chelsea expired at the end of last season.

It was reported that the former Arsenal striker had attended QPR's 0-0 draw with Wigan, but Redknapp laughed off the suggestions that he could be about to sign the 29-year old for the second time in his career.

"I wouldn't think there's a lot of chance getting him up to Wigan on a wet, windy and cold Wednesday night. I would think he's probably had somewhere better to go," he told a press conference.

"He's not coming here, no chance."

Redknapp also rubbished talk linking him with a move for former West Ham, Chelsea and Liverpool midfielder Benayoun.

"I don't know where the story's come from. I've always been a big fan of Yossi Benayoun. For me he's an excellent footballer," he said.

"I wouldn't say we wouldn't be interested in him if he is available and fit, but I haven't discussed it with the board here or anybody else. There's no story at the moment."
