Skysports.com understands Queens Park Rangers are lining up a bid for Mikele Leigertwood.
The Sheffield United midfielder is being tipped for a return to the capital, a year after moving to Bramall Lane from Crystal Palace.
He made 19 appearances in the Premier League last season, but was sidelined for a lengthy spell due to injury.
Since Bryan Robson replaced Neil Warnock as manager over the summer, Leigertwood has featured in four of the club's five games of the new campaign.
But that has not stopped Championship rivals QPR from registering an interest in the 24-year-old.
With the transfer window closing on Friday, QPR will have to act quickly to finalise any deal to take Leigertwood to Loftus Road.
