Further QPR Signings Expected Shortly

-
BBC - QPR poised to sign Vine and Hall
QPR are set to increase their January spending by completing the signings of Birmingham striker Rowan Vine and Wigan defender Fitz Hall.
Rangers are close to sealing the permanent capture of Vine, 25, after he impressed during a recent loan spell.
And Hall, 27, is expected to join the Championship club before the weekend.
Ex-Aston Villa keeper Stefan Postma, now with Dutch club ADO Den Haag, and Argentinean winger Sebastian Rusculleda are also in line to join the R's.
Rusculleda, 22, plays for Argentine club Tigre and will arrive in London to complete his move next week.
QPR have money to spend in the transfer market after a takeover by Formula One magnates Bernie Ecclestone and Flavio Briatore, which has been followed by investment from steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal.
They have already signed Akos Buzsaky from Plymouth, Hogan Ephraim from West Ham, Matt Connolly from Arsenal, Gavin Mahon from Watford and Patrick Agyemang from Preston.
Rangers have enquired about a number of other players, including Tottenham winger Wayne Routledge.
A bid to re-sign former Rangers defender Dan Shittu from Watford has also been discussed and Birmingham centre-back Martin Taylor remains a target despite competition for his signature from Norwich City. BBC
