Released Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is weighing up an offer from QPR. The Mirror says Harry Redknapp is hoping his close relationship with the former Manchester United defender will lure him to Loftus Road.

Ferdinand still played in United's biggest games last season and it would be a clever signing for QPR on and off the pitch.

There are likely to be big offers from the Premier League, Europe and also the MLS but moving to London could be a factor for Rio.
