QPR remain interested in a move for Wycombe Wanderers defender Aaron Pierre, while they continue to monitor developments regarding Henri Lansbury’s future.
As exclusively revealed by The Times back in January, Pierre - who was named in the PFA League Two team of the year - has been earmarked by the Rangers hierarchy as a potential signing.
The former Brentford youngster, who has a year left on his deal at Adams Park, has come on leaps and bounds during his two-year spell with the Chairboys.
The Times understands that the tough-tackling centre-half would welcome a move to QPR, who signed his former team-mate Matt Ingram in the winter transfer window.
Lansbury, who has a year left on his current deal at Nottingham Forest, is seen as the ideal type of player to bolster their midfield options, but newly-promoted Premier League outfit Burnley are also keen on striking a deal with the 25-year-old.
Elsewhere, former Rangers boss Neil Warnock is in advanced talks with Rotherham over becoming their manager on a permanent basis. The Times understands QPR’s head physio Nigel Cox is likely to join Warnock at the New York stadium, should the former agree terms.
Clint Hill and Alejandro Faurlin will be on Warnock’s horizon if he opts to extend his 27-year managerial career this summer.
