QPR are considering making a move for Nottingham Forest captain Henri Lansbury.

The 25-year-old, who is also attracting interest from Championship rivals Burnley, came close to leaving the City Ground for Turf Moor in August but opted to remain at the club after much deliberation.

And now Rs boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who is a long-term admirer of the highly-rated midfielder, is weighing up whether to join the race for the former Arsenal man.

Hasselbaink, who is still waiting for his first win as Rs boss, has been told he will have money to spend this month.

The Times understands that as many as three new arrivals could arrive in W12 as the club look to get back on track and climb the table after a disappointing campaign to date, which sees them lying 16th in the Championship and 11 points off the play-offs.

Ravel Morrison, who came close to joining the club in the last transfer window, remains on the club’s radar while Rangers are monitoring Burton’s Dutch winger Nasser El Khayati.

The Championship side are actively looking to offload players off their wage bill too though, and are open to offers for Charlie Austin, Sandro, Leroy Fer and Matty Phillips.

Samba Diakite and Armand Traore are both surplus to requirements and are available for transfer.

Austin is expected to see out his current deal which runs out in June, despite interest from a host of Premier League sides in the in-form forward.

The 26-year-old has spent a chunk of this season on the sidelines already owing to injury, but the former Burnley and Swindon striker has still managed to net an impressive 10 times in just 16 appearances to date.

Elsewhere, PSV Eindhoven and Ajax are both prepared to take Fer off QPR’s wage bill too, with a loan move more likely at this stage, with an option to make the deal permanent in the summer.

Premier League strugglers Sunderland are also eyeing a cut-price deal for Brazilian midfielder Sandro.

The former Tottenham midfielder cost the club £6m back in September 2014, but Rangers are prepared to take a loss on him as they look to reduce the hefty wage bill at the club.
