QPR boss Neil Warnock is eyeing Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe.

The Daily Mail says Warnock is short of a striker who can find the goals to keep his team in the top flight and has earmarked the England forward for a January transfer bid of around £8million.

Warnock believes the 29-year-old has one big move in him and is hoping he can persuade Defoe that his future lies at Loftus Road.

Defoe has been pushed out of the picture with Emanuel Adebayor's arrival and the form of Rafael van der Vaart. He was on the bench last Saturday – a recurring position that may lead him to find a new challenge elsewhere.

Newcastle United, Sunderland, Aston Villa and Everton are also keen but may struggle to tempt Defoe out of London.
