Richard Dunne: Transfer target for Harry Redknapp at QPR

Dunne is a free agent after being released by Villa earlier this summer following an injury-ravaged season last term.

The Republic of Ireland international failed to play a single game last season due to a serious Achilles injury, but he proved his fitness by featuring for the Republic in a friendly against Georgia in June.

Doncaster Rovers have been weighing up a move for the 33-year-old, but QPR are hopeful of luring the centre-half to Loftus Road.

Dunne is keen to kick-start his career again and Redknapp sees him as an ideal leader to help his side's bid to win promotion back to the Premier League.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
