Transfer News – QPR show interest in Manchester & Chelsea stars

Updated: May 27, 2014

QPR are reportedly interested in signing Premier League veterans Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard.

Manager Harry Redknapp is rumoured to be interested in the services of the Premier League stalwarts to strengthen their hopes of avoiding relegation next season.

Ferdinand is a free agent after being failing to re-sign for Manchester United at the end of the season. The defender amassed 455 appearances and won several accolades including six Premier League medals in his 12 years at Old Trafford.

Lampard’s future at Chelsea remains up in the air as his contract is up in the summer. The midfielder has yet to agree a new deal with the club.

“They are fantastic players, I’m sure Frank Lampard, at the moment, is worried about a certain tournament in Brazil said QPR chief executive Philip Beard

“Anything you’re going to read over the next few days is pure speculation. Tony [Fernandes, QPR owner] is in London, the other owners are either in London or have travelled back to different parts of the world.

“We’ve arranged to talk on Friday. That’s when we’re going to sit down with Harry and with some of the scouts, we’ve got lists of players, but I can promise you that anything you read at the moment is pure speculation.”

QPR sealed their place in the top flight of English football next season after defeating Derby 1-0 in a dramatic play-off final. Bobby Zamora’s stunning finish in the 89th minute secured promotion for QPR, who had played over a half an hour with 10 men following Gary O’Neil’s sending off.
