Football Spy: Young quitting QPR for Reading, Birmingham set to lose Zigic... and more

All change: Mark Hughes is shuffling the pack at QPR

QPR defender Luke Young is set to join Reading’s Russian revolution after just a year at Loftus Road.
The former England full-back, who was signed by Neil Warnock last summer, has fallen down the pecking order since the arrival of new boss Mark Hughes.
The former Tottenham and Charlton stopper, who is on £30,000 a week, made 23 league appearances last season.
Young, 32, will become Brian McDermott’s fourth summer signing with Garath McCleary, Pavel Pogrebnyak and Danny Guthrie having all joined newly-promoted Reading.

Kenny will complete move to Leeds

Paddy Kenny is ready to sign for Leeds United this week - after QPR accepted a bumper promotion bonus in the deal.
Keeper Kenny will be re-united with Neil Warnock for just £400,000 after Rangers allowed him to sort out the move back to Yorkshire.
And Leeds are also due to pay QPR a further £300,000 if they clinch a place in the Premier League - with the switch to be rubber-stamped once the Elland Road club get new investment in the next few days...  Mirror

Nottingham Forest facing trouble over alleged tapping up of Darren Ferguson

• Championship club on brink of Kuwaiti takeover 
• Peterborough believe former QPR chairman approached their manager on Forest's behalf
• Leeds manager Neil Warnock also in frame to take over at City Ground
Nottingham Forest are in danger of being reported to the Football League over an alleged approach for the Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson.
Forest are on the brink of a Kuwaiti takeover, in the form of the multi-millionaire Al-Hasawi family, and considering replacing Steve Cotterill in time for the new season. Neil Warnock, who is understood to have been considering his future at Leeds United this summer, is another possible alternative.
Peterborough's information is that Gianni Paladini, the former QPR chairman, is acting on behalf of Forest. Paladini, who featured prominently in the infamous QPR: The Four-Year Plan documentary, left his consultancy role at Loftus Road after the Tony Fernandes takeover last year. Guardian

Update: Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has moved swiftly to deny reports he could take over as manager of Championship rivals Nottingham Forest.
Nottingham Forest are said to be in danger of being reported to the Football League over an alleged approach.
It is thought current Forest boss Steve Cotterill may be replaced when an impending takeover by Kuwaiti multi-millionaires is finalised.
However, Ferguson has said that he is fully focussed on the upcoming season with Peterborough United.
He said: “I am very happy at the football club.
“We are back for pre-season training on Monday and I and the rest of my staff are looking forward to the new season.
“Myself and the chairman have an excellent relationship and we are working hard together to bring in the players we have identified to strengthen our squad.”
A statement from the club said: “Peterborough United will not comment on media speculation that they have reported Nottingham Forest to the Football League.”
Darragh MacAnthony is currently in Barbados but the Peterborough Telegraph have approached him personally for a response to the allegations.
On Twitter, MacAnthony mentioned “strange” events that happened yesterday but didn’t go into any further detail.
The chairman wrote: “Been a strange day on footy front but I should never be shocked like I was today.”
Former QPR chairman Gianni Paladini is said to be acting on behalf of Forest to broker a deal to bring Ferguson to the City Ground.
No statement has been made by the club, but Posh chairman Darragh MacAnthony tweeted a derogatory message about Paladini last night.
Replying to rumours of the Kuwaiti takeover, MacAnthony wrote: “I’d be worried for Forest fans if it involved Paladini... they deserve better then him that’s for sure.”
