The site, close to Rangers' current Loftus Road home, is the subject of a planned redevelopment which would include a new transport hub by 2026.

The Greater London Authority issued a statement in June asking for contributions to "a 30-year vision for Old Oak" which could see new homes, shops and leisure facilities built in the area.

And QPR have confirmed they have already held talks about the possibility of relocating there.

A club statement read: "We are looking at a number of potential options for a new stadium and believe that Old Oak could provide one possible solution.

"We have met with representatives of the GLA and the supporting local authorities to discuss whether a football stadium could be incorporated into any plan that comes forward for this site."

Owner Tony Fernandes has made it a priority to press ahead with plans for a new stadium, and the club's chief executive Philip Beard last month said several options were up for discussion.

"We're making progress with stadium plans, but it's important we've got three or four options," he said.

"We've got plans and want to stay as close as we can to Loftus Road, that's important. We want to recreate the atmosphere, but if we're going to do something it's got to be a multi-use facility."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
