Queens Parker Rangers

Premier League newcomers Queens Park Rangers have entered the race to sign Scott Parker, say reports.

The west London club, who have already signed former Hammers Kieron Dyer and Danny Gabbidon this summer are set to be taken over by Malaysian entreprenuer Tony Fernandes.

The 47-year-old owner of Lotus and Air Asia is set to announce the purchase of a 51 per cent controlling stake in the club imminently.

And now Fernandes - a West Ham fan, who tried to buy a majority share of United earlier this year having lost out to Davids Sullivan and Gold in 2009 - is set to make Parker his number one priority upon taking control of Rangers.

Reports suggest that QPR have already tested the waters with an opening bid of 4million.

With West Ham looking for around double that figure, a compromise could be reached - although Parker is unlikely to accept a move to another club likely to struggle in the Premier League whilst safer bets like Chelsea and Tottenham are still monitoring his situation.

''Fernandes is an imposter. Thank God he is where he belongs- at a club losing 4-0 at home to Bolton.

4million for Parker? QPR have as much chance with that as I do of replacing Cameron in the morning.''
