Richard Dunne: Experienced centre-half is available as a free agent

The Republic of Ireland international is available as a free agent after departing Villa Park.

QPR are in the market for an experienced centre-half, having offloaded Chris Samba back to Anzhi Makhachkala.

Dunne would fit the bill, as Harry Redknapp prepares his side for life in the Championship.

No deal has been agreed as yet, but QPR chief executive Phil Beard admits there is a desire on their part to bring the 33-year-old on board.

He said in the Fulham Chronicle: "He's not signed yet but he's a player that Harry would like to bring to the club.

"We're looking at a number of players. The main thing is that they want to play for the club and are ready for the Championship, which is very different to the Premier League."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
