QPR v Ipswich: QPR are closing in on two big money signings – Scott Parker and Duvan Zapata – ahead of Ipswich Town’s visit to Loftus Road on saturday.
The Telegraph are reporting that Tottenham have accepted a £3.5m bid for 32-year-old England international Parker, with a switch likely to be completed within the next 48 hours.
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail report that Colombia Under-20 international striker Zapata held talks with the west London club yesterday after Argentine club side Estudiantes confirmed they had accepted a £6m offer.
The newly-relegated Hoops have already got seven players with England caps on their books in the form of Rob Green, Luke Young, Joey Barton, Jermaine Jenas, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora.
Jose Bosingwa, Djibril Cisse and Christopher Samba all left QPR following their relegation from the top-flight, while Brazil keeper Julio Cesar also looks set to follow suit.
