QPR are in pole position to sign former Fulham midfielder Chris Baird .
The Northern Irishman was released by the Whites in the summer but has been training with Rangers for the past couple of weeks.
Stoke, Crystal Palace, West Brom and Bolton have all shown an interest in the 31-year-old.
A couple of other Championship clubs are also keeping tabs on his situation, but QPR are the only ones to make a concrete offer.
“I like Chris Baird,” said manager Harry Redknapp earlier this week.
“He knows what he’s doing and he’s a good player. I’d like to do something with him.”
