QPR line up moves to sign Tottenham defender Kyle Naughton and Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand

Newly promoted Premier League club also target free agent Jay Bothroyd, Blackpool’s DJ Campbell and Hull’s Jimmy Bullard as Neil Warnock begins summer shopping spree
17 Jun 2011 08:07:00

Queens Park Rangers are in talks to sign Tottenham and Chelsea’s youthful full-backs Kyle Naughton and Ryan Bertrand, Goal.com can reveal.

Manager Neil Warnock has identified the England Under-21 internationals as two of his principal targets as he prepares to beef up his squad ahead of QPR’s return to the Premier League.

Warnock is also lining up moves for free agent Jay Bothroyd, Blackpool’s DJ Campbell and Hull City midfielder Jimmy Bullard.

Goal.com understands that the QPR manager will have a summer kitty of between £10 million and £15m to bring in new blood.

He has identified right-back, left-back, central midfield and centre forward as the key positions that require improving.

Rangers have enquired about taking Naughton, who came through the ranks at Sheffield United and was on the verge of making the first team when Warnock was manager, on a season-long loan. The newly promoted club also want first option on a £4m deal to sign the right-back if they stay up in the Premier League.

Spurs are willing to allow Naughton to go out on loan again following spells at Middlesbrough and Leicester City as there will be fierce competition for the right-back position at White Hart Lane next season, with Kyle Walker strongly tipped to establish himself as first choice ahead of Vedran Corluka and Younes Kaboul. Alan Hutton, who is a target for Aston Villa, Fulham and Sunderland, is expected to leave the club.

Bertrand, who has figured in England’s two Under-21 matches in the European Championships in Denmark, is highly regarded at Stamford Bridge but is behind Ashley Cole and Yuri Zhirkov in the pecking order.

QPR would rather buy the left-back than loan him as Premier League clubs are allowed to loan only two UK-based players per season. The Loftus Road club are preparing a £1.5m move for Bertrand, who has admitted he could be forced to leave Chelsea to get first-team football.

Rangers face a battle with Everton to land recently-capped England striker Bothroyd, who is available for free following his departure from Cardiff City.

Warnock is a long-time admirer of the 28-year-old and believes that the carrot of leading the line every week for a Premier League club and the attraction of returning to London will outweigh the possibility of marginally higher wages at Goodison Park.

DJ Campbell is also a target – in addition to and not instead of Bothroyd – and Rangers believe they can snare the Blackpool man for £1m. West Ham are interested but the striker has let potential suitors know that he would rather stay in the top flight.

Bullard, who spent the second half of last season on loan at Ipswich Town, is also highly regarded by Warnock and available for free even though he cost Hull a club-record £5m and has two years left on his contract.

The Tigers are keen to get Bullard, who is said to earn £45,000-a-week, off their wage bill and are willing to forsake a transfer fee to do so.

Rangers would only be able to afford half of what Bullard earns at Hull but want to make him a pivotal member of their midfield.

Who's In Charge of Transfers at Loftus Road?
Simple question: With no Chairman and CEO Ishan Sakensa; no Deputy Chairman, Amit Bhatia; No Deputy Managing Director, Ali Russell. No Club Secretary such as Sheila Marson. Who's in charge of Contract negotiations; making transfer deals and ensuring all paperwork in absolute, pristine order?
