QPR have spoken to Chris Powell about the vacant manager’s job at Loftus Road.
The former Huddersfield and Charlton boss, who is currently Steve McClaren’s assistant at Championship rivals Derby County, is one of a number of candidates currently being discussed by the hierarchy.
Powell, who has done well at both of his former Championship clubs on limited resources, was interviewed for the job this time last year - with Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink eventually beating him to the post.
Chief executive Lee Hoos is a big admirer of the 46-year-old, who he knows well from their time together at Leicester City.
In addition to Powell, Rangers have spoken to Paul Clement, Karl Robinson and fans favourite Ian Holloway - who is emerging as a serious contender for the vacancy.

Elsewhere, Tim Sherwood’s wage demands look likely to be a stumbling block ahead of any potential appointment, while Steve Cotterill, briefly on the coaching staff during Harry Redknapp’s reign in W12, wants the job.
Dougie Freedman, a close ally of the Gallen family, has also applied for the post, but is a firm outsider at this stage.
