South Yorkshire Star/James Shield - United could't match QPR's Kenny Terms
- SHEFFIELD United conceded defeat in the battle for Paddy Kenny after discovering the size of the contract he was being offered by QPR, The Star can reveal.
- Kenny, who has agreed a three-year deal at Loftus Road, is expected to be officially unveiled as Neil Warnock's latest summer signing this afternoon.
- United mounted a desperate rearguard action to try and keep the Republic of Ireland international having learnt of the Londoners interest towards the end of last month.
- But they realised the game was up when the exact amount Rangers were prepared to invest became apparent.
- It is understood the package they offered - said to cover the next two seasons - was dwarfed by the sums of money tabled by the Blades.
- United stood shoulder to shoulder with Kenny, who had already confirmed he wanted to accept Rangers' proposal, when he received a nine month ban for failing a drugs test en route to the 2009 play-off final. But their support came at a price with the player accepting his wages would be reduced by around two thirds.
- The proposal Rangers used to lure Kenny the the capital is believed to be worth significantly more than he was earning during his period in exile although United, who initially refused their counterparts permission to open talks about the £750,000 switch, subsequently pledged to increase his salary.
- While financial considerations have undoubtedly played a part in Kenny's decision, personal concerns are also known to have influenced his thinking.
Friends insist that, following his run in with an FA disciplinary panel, Kenny also felt a clean break would quickly relaunch his career.
United have yet to comment publicly on the matter, privately they are known to feel let down by developments.
- However Gary Naysmith, who has left Bramall Lane after agreeing to join Huddersfield Town, leaves with their good wishes.
United made a "competitive" but Naysmith, who is believed to be friends with Huddersfield manager Lee Clark, opted to join the ambitous League One outfit instead" The Star

MIRROR - QPR want Pompey striker
QPR boss Neil Warnock is trying to sign striker Tommy Smith from Portsmouth in a £500,000 deal.
Warnock has asked Pompey to name a price for the former Watford hit man.
Smith is prepared to move if Portsmouth will let him. He was valued at £1m in a recent list of available players but could go for much less. Mirror

- A Reading Fan Site Hopes QPR rather than Reading Sign Preston's Darren Carter!

- So many news stories that Kenny (and others were signing - even had signed) but thus far, no Official Announcements from either the buying or selling clubs.

- An Ian Holloway column in The Independent. (Will be interesting to see if this is going to be a weekly column - and how it might affect Warnock's weekly Independent column)
