With the arrival of Matt Phillips to the squad of QPR, Harry Redknapp has admitted that Shaun Wright-Phillips is on his long-term plans and it has become difficult for the coach to offload the former Chelsea player considering his high wages.

Redknapp said: “It’s difficult. It’s only Premier League clubs who could afford to take him on his wages. Other clubs aren’t going to put up that type of money. There isn’t big money in this league wages-wise. If any of them want to take a thousand-per-cent drop in wages or something, they can, but you don’t see too many doing that.”

Wright-Phillips is not the only player that Harry Redknapp is trying to lure away from the club as the Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar is another performer of QPR that is seeing more time on the sidelines than on the actual pitch and his high wages is a main reason why Redknapp is attempting to offload the player to another club.

The English winger Shaun Wright-Phillips has seen his playing time on QPR getting cut down with each season that passes by. In his debut season with the Championship club he managed to play in 32 matches, his appearances were limited to 20 in the season of 2012-13.

It’s a similar story when talking about Julio Cesar, the former star of Inter Milan who was considered to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world when he used to play for the Italian side and has failed to make a single appearance for the Championship club QPR in this current season.
