Snippets: QPR Reportedly Bid for Kris Commons...Rowan Vine Rated One of "Worst January Signings"

Mirror - Clubs come winging in to sign Kris
Nottingham Forest have received bids of £500,000 from QPR, Leicester and Wolves for Kris Commons.
The 24-year-old winger (above) is out of contract in the summer and has declined a new deal.
League One Forest will cash in on him once they eventually recruit striker Leon Best from Coventry for around £1.3million. Mirror

From The Times, from a couple of days ago...but with respect to Rowan Vine, of course, referring to Rowan Vine's move to Birmingham from Luton, last January, not his move to QPR!:

The Times/Tom Dart - The 50 best and worst January signings
"Plenty of clubs nab a bargain in the January sales but, for every side shopping to avoid relegation or kick on at the top, there is a chairman waiting to exploit their desperation - and that transfer window saviour turns out overrated, overpriced, or both. Here, we list the 25 best and worst January signings since the transfer window was introduced in 2003....

De-Vine inspiration was absent during the forward’s spell in the Midlands. Prolific at Luton, he scored just once after his £2.5 million switch and has spent most of this season on loan at QPR, where he has just made the move permanent for £1 million." The Times

Also: Mirror repeats what's been reported elsewhere:
Mirror - Cerny: Buy me or I'm off to QPR
Tottenham keeper Radek Cerny admits he would be interested in a move to QPR - even though he has just become first-choice at White Hart Lane.
Cerny is on a long-term loan deal from Slavia Prague, but the contract is due to expire at the end of the season. The Czech star has overtaken England keeper Paul Robinson as the No.1. Cerny (right) is in pole position to keep his place for the Carling Cup Final against Chelsea.
But it is believed that his agent Pavel Paska has held talks with QPR's co-owner Flavio Briatore over a possible move to Loftus Road and the keeper has yet to be offered a permanent deal at Spurs. Cerny said: "As my contract in Tottenham expires in the summer, I must be looking for a different club. And if QPR were it, then I would go there.
"I have no problem with the Championship, it is an extremely tough competition of high quality." Mirror
