Anton Ferdinand: QPR defender in talks over loan move to Bursaspor

Ferdinand moved to QPR from Sunderland 18 months ago and has made 49 appearances during his time at Loftus Road.

However, he has fallen out of favour under Harry Redknapp in recent weeks and has not made a Premier League appearance since the Boxing Day defeat by West Bromwich Albion.

The centre-half started Saturday's shock FA Cup reverse at the hands of MK Dons, but he could now be on his way out of the club.

It is understood that the 27-year-old is holding talks over the possibility of joining Turkish side Bursaspor on a loan deal for the rest of the season.

The impending acquisition of Yun Suk-young has created the opportunity for Ferdinand to be moved on, although the South Korea international is still waiting to be granted a work permit.

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.
