QPR make Ferdinand move

Ferdinand could find himself way down the pecking order

Queens Park Rangers are poised to make a move for Sunderland defender Anton Ferdinand as Neil Warnock looks to bolster his squad.

The 26-year-old joined Sunderland from West Ham for a fee of £8 million three years ago and is now in the final year of his £40,000-a-week contract at the Stadium of Light. Although he has begun the season in Steve Bruce’s starting XI for each of their three Premier League games The Black Cats have an abundance of defensive options and could be willing to cash in on the player and avoid risking losing him for nothing next summer.

Bruce signed John O’Shea and Wes Brown in the summer transfer window to add to a squad that already included Titus Bramble and Michael Turner – who are both close to returning from injury – meaning Ferdinand could find himself way down the pecking order when all are fit.

It is understood that QPR and Sunderland have agreed a fee of £1 million for Ferdinand and that the player is keen to move in order to secure first team football.
