Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp said that Taarabt has a future with the club as long as he keeps himself fit and works hard, reports the Daily Mail.

Taarabt was earlier accused of being overweight by the manager, but he returned to first-team training last week and could feature in a reserves match this week to help develop his fitness.

Despite being criticized by manager Harry Redknapp for being overweight Taarabt trained with the first team on Wednesday and could be part of the squad to face Aston Villa on Monday, reports the Daily Mail.

The feud between Redknapp and Taarabt boiled into the public view, and team chairman Tony Fernanded stepped in to broker an agreement between the pair to calm the situation. That deal could include Taarabt being part of the squad to play on Monday.

Manager Harry Redknapp hit out at Taarabt explaining that the midfielder is not fit and doesn't want to try in training to improve and work his way back into the side, according to the Daily Mail.

Redknapp's scathing remarks included a comment that Taarabt played a reserve game last week, but did virtually no running and is overweight. He said he would not protect players that don't want to run and train properly.

Manager Harry Redknapp expressed concerns about Taarabt's ability to remain fit through recovery of his ankle injury, reports Sky Sports.

Taarabt twisted his ankle this past week and returned to training for just 15 minutes before injuring it again. Redknapp openly debated giving the player some extra rest, but was torn as he felt the player would gain weight and lose fitness during the time off. There is no expected return for Taarabt at this time.

Taarabt played all 90 minutes in QPR's shock 1-0 loss to Burton Albion in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

Taarabt has yet to feature for QPR in Premier League play, but it's an encouraging sign that he was able to get through a full 90 minutes, considering he had been struggling for fitness earlier this summer. There's a chance Taarabt will get an opportunity to show what he can do in QPR's upcoming fixture on Saturday versus Sunderland, but it'd be wise to look for better fantasy options until the Moroccan playmaker earns a more prominent role.

Taarabt is nearing a move to AC Milan after the Italian club submitted a 3 million transfer bid to Queens Park Rangers, The Evening Standard reports.

Taarabt seems destined to leave QPR after being left out of the club's recent preseason tour to Germany, which followed back-and-forth remarks with manager Harry Redknapp in the papers. The Moroccan midfielder enjoyed spending the second half of last season on loan at AC Milan, where he scored four goals in 12 starting appearances. Now with a bid reportedly tabled, it could be just a matter of time before Taarabt secures his switch to the Rossoneri.

Taarabt has been harshly criticized by QPR manager Harry Redknapp for being out of shape, West London Sport reports.

Despite his disappointment in Taarabt's unwillingness to buckle down and get fit, Redknapp believes the Moroccan could be a valuable asset this season, as the newly promoted Premier League club is in need of a playmaker in the number 10 role. Taarabt has the qualities to fill that void and did impress during a loan spell at AC Milan last season, but it's unclear how committed he truly is to QPR.
