image for QPR, Peter Crouch, a monkey and a giraffe
cash in claw

QPR are haggling with Tottenham to pick up a bargain Peter Crouch. Local lad Peter Crouch was given the moniker 'Rodney' by Rangers fans when he first displayed his lanky frame down Shepherd's Bush: "Crouchie was a dead ringer for Rodney Trotter from Only Fools And Horses", explained entrepeneur Willy Scrote from East Acton.

Now cockney wheeler dealer 'Arry Redknapp wants to earn a few quid by outing the beanpole footballer to Stoke. But Crouchie has got the hump with all the horse trading: "I'm sick of flogging crap down markets every day 'Arry, i want to better meself."

'Arry is having none of it and has told Crouchie that his accountant Daniel Levy needs to balance the books: "Get yer head down son and this time next year we could both be millionaires."

But Crouchie does not want to up sticks and has complained to 'Arry: "I've already got a big house in Weybridge and am shacked up with a fit Superbra model. Sod Stoke. I want to play for a glamour club like QPR."

According to an insider who works for the BBC, 'Arry Redknapp has told QPR manager Neil Warnock: "You can have Crouchie if you pay his 70 grand a week wages and bung me a monkey in a brown envelope."

But Warnock is no mug punter himself and does not want to get tucked up in a dodgy deal: "A monkey! you're having a giraffe" he told 'Arry Boy.

But 'Arry Boy had the last word and has told Warnock: "Do me a favour! You will be the one having a giraffe if you sign Crouchie."
