QPR are ready to splash out in January for Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe.

The Daily Mail says Neil Warnock is preparing to blow the majority of his £15 million January transfer budget on landing Defoe from Tottenham.

Spurs have made it clear they will refuse any bids of less than £10 million for the 29-year-old striker, who still has more than three years left on his deal.

But the Hoops boss has identified the out-of-favour striker as his No 1 target and believes the player can add extra thrust to their attack.

And Rangers supremo Tony Fernandes is ready to sanction the acquisition of one marquee signing in January.
