MIRROR - QPR make £1.3million bid for Reading striker Leroy Lita
QPR are making a £1.3million bid to sign Reading striker Leroy Lita to fire their promotion bid.
Lita is out of contract in the summer and Steve Coppell's club are willing to cash in on him - with Rangers bettering the offer made by Sheffield United last week.
The pacey forward will be cleared for talks but could wait to become a free agent." Mirror

Daily Mail - QPR eye £1.3m Leroy Lita raid
QPR have offered Coca-Cola Championship rivals Reading £1.3m in a bid to lure striker Leroy Lita to Loftus Road.
Reading are prepared to sell Lita, who will be out of contract at the end of the season, and QPR have outbid Sheffield United. The former England Under 21 turned down a move to Bramall Lane and may reject QPR as well so he can explore his opportunities as a free agent this summer.
The Blades, meanwhile, should complete the signing of Chesterfield striker Jamie Ward in a £400,000 deal, with a 15 per cent sell-on clause, assuming personal terms can be agreed..." Daily Mail

R's duo Damien Delaney and Liam Miller have been called up to the Republic of Ireland squad for their forthcoming World Cup qualifier against Georgia.
