QPR fancies Birmingham veteran Bowyer
QPR boss Neil Warnock fancies making Birmingham City midfielder Lee Bowyer his first signing for the Premier League new boys.
It is understood he has only been offered a one-year contract, while he wants two years. However, QPR are prepared to give him a deal until 2013 as they feel Bowyer's top-flight experience will be valuable to the squad.
The former Leeds, Newcastle and West Ham midfielder has a fiery reputation and was given a three-game ban in January after being found guilty of violent conduct following a clash with Arsenal's Bacary Sagna.
