QPR boss Mark Hughes is pushing to land Tottenham defender William Gallas.

The Sunday Mirror says Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas will allow the Frenchman to leave as he puts his stamp on White Hart Lane.

'Sparky' Hughes ­is ­continuing his own ­rebuilding job, and sees the 34-year-old adding vital experience to his back four.

If a deal can be struck, Rangers will become the fourth London club of Gallas' career.

He spent five years at Chelsea and four at Arsenal ­before his switch to Tottenham two years ago.
