Dunne on verge of QPR move

Free agent Richard Dunne is closing in on a move to Queens Park Rangers, a source has told ESPN.

Richard Dunne has returned to the Ireland squad.
Richard Dunne was released by Aston Villa last month.

Dunne, 33, has been available on a free transfer since being released by Aston Villa last month, and QPR are on the brink of seeing off strong competition for the signature of the veteran defender.

Newly-promoted Premier League side Hull, Championship outfit Derby and Scottish Premier League side Celtic have all been linked with the Ireland international in recent weeks, but it looks as if Loftus Road will be his next destination.

Dunne did not make a single appearance for Villa in the Premier League last season as he failed to overcome a host of injury problems.

Now, however, the former Manchester City man is hoping a move to QPR will kick-start both his club and international career, with his comeback for Ireland in last month’s friendly against Georgia fuelling hope that he can play a role in his country’s crucial World Cup qualifiers against Sweden and Austria in September.

Hoops boss Harry Redknapp is believed to view Dunne as the ideal replacement for the departed Chris Samba, with his injury record the only real concern if he agrees to drop down into a physically demanding Championship division.
