MILLWALL have confirmed their interest in Lee Cook should the QPR winger be made available for transfer.
Cook has struggled to recapture full match fitness since he was sidelined by a botched knee operation last year and could lose his place in the Rs side once Darren Ambrose completes his move from Crystal Palace.
Lions boss Kenny Jackett, who worked with Cook during his time as Ian Holloway's number two at Loftus Road, is an admirer of the winger and is looking for proven Championship players to strengthen his newly-promoted squad.
Jackett's assistant Joe Gallen, the former QPR youth team boss, told the Times: "Because of the number of managers they've had, there's been a high turnover of players.
"We keep a close eye on QPR because we know there are a few who may not fit into Neil Warnock's plans.

"There may be someone we can sign or take on loan and if a player of the calibre of Lee Cook came up, we'd have to be interested."
The 27-year-old, who supported Rangers as a youngster, has made almost 200 appearances for the club in three separate spells and was Player of the Year in 2007.
QPR will be aiming to make it third time lucky when they face League Two side Port Vale in the first round of the Carling Cup in August.
Rangers have been knocked out by the Potteries side in both their two previous meetings in the competition - losing a first round replay in 1960 and suffering a 3-2 defeat at Vale Park four years ago.
Micky Adams' team will travel to Loftus Road on Tuesday August 10.
