QPR are closing in on the £5million capture of Birmingham City keeper Ben Foster .

Rangers boss Mark Hughes has made bringing in another shot-stopper one of his main priorities in the summer transfer window after leaking 66 goals in just 38 games last season.

QPR have been linked with Rob Green, Shay Given, Heurelho Gomes and Craig Gordon, but the Birmingham City star has jumped to the top of the list.

Foster, who still has a year to run on his contract at St Andrews, was a big hit on loan at West Brom last season, and is keen to remain in the Premier League.

Hughes will give the green light for current number one Paddy Kenny to leave Loftus Road once he brings in another keeper, with Leeds United waiting in the wings.
