Skysports.com understands Queens Park Rangers are lining up a move for Coventry defender Gary Borrowdale.
Borrowdale is well down the pecking order at the Ricoh Arena and Sky Blues boss Chris Coleman is willing to let him leave.
The 23-year-old has not featured for Coventry this season and spent a month on loan at Colchester last month.
The news has alerted QPR to Borrowdale's availability and they are ready to bring him to Loftus Road.
Rangers are ready to sign Borrowdale initially on loan with a view to a permanent deal.
If Rangers tie up a deal for the versatile defender he will become new boss Paulo Sousa's first signing since taking charge at Loftus Road.
