The 27-year old, who comes out of contract with Norwegian club SK Brann in December, has been the reported subject of a rejected £200,000 bid from the Whites but Warnock suggests he is still interested in his services.
"He's a player I had at QPR. I had him over for a week and he's a smashing lad," the former R's boss told the Yorkshire Post.
"I've always liked him, but it's always been a bit too much money.
"The last time I spoke to them, it was around the £2m mark. But his contract runs out in December and he's one that we are looking at as well as several others."
