QPR's attempt to sign veteran striker Dele Adebola has run into trouble.

Adebola is expected to leave Bristol City when his contract expires this summer, and Rangers are keen to capture him on a Bosman free transfer.

But negotiations have stalled over the experienced striker's demands and Rangers are considering their next move.

Adebola, who turns 34 next month, has been offered a one-year contract by City but is keen to land a two-year deal.

Rangers are offering a one-year contract with the option of a second year should the Nigerian-born player make a certain number of appearances.
