Queens Park Rangers are set to launch a bid for Tottenham midfielder Steven Pienaar, Sky Sports understands.

The South African schemer has become disillusioned with the lack of first-team chances at White Hart Lane.

Pienaar moved to Tottenham 12 months ago from Everton, but has started less than 10 league games in that time.

Now the 29-yaer-old is ready to quit the club and a number of sides have already shown an interest in taking him.

Former club Everton and Sunderland were strongly linked, but Sky Sports understands QPR are ready to emerge as favourites by making a firm offer.

With funds made available to him, new QPR boss Mark Hughes has been quick to identify some of his top targets.

Pienaar has emerged as one of those, as Hughes looks to add some extra quality to his midfield.
