Richard Dunne: Transfer target for Harry Redknapp at QPR

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.

Rangers boss Harry Redknapp is thought to be a big fan of Dunne and sees him as an ideal replacement for Chris Samba following his return to Anzhi.

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.

put Ince in my fantasy football team, so it's no surprise at all really. I do that to players. Also responsible for De Jong and Upson being injured. Think I'll transfer in Di Maria just to ruin United....
