QPR have granted Anton Ferdinand permission to discuss loan a move with Bursaspor.

Ferdinand switched to Rangers from Sunderland 18 months ago.

But the 27-year-old has fallen out of favour under boss Harry Redknapp and has not played a Premier League game since Boxing Day.

The defender started Saturday's FA Cup defeat against MK Dons but was woeful.

Now he is holding talks about a move for the rest of the season.
