Rangers centre-half Madjid Bougherra is eyeing an England return and says talks will begin after he completes upcoming national team duties.
The Algeria international, who has 12 months left on his current contract, helped ‘Gers to their third straight Scottish Premier League title as well as the League Cup this season but has indicated that he is keen to move on from Ibrox and provide himself with a sterner test.
28-year old Bougherra has already had stints in England with the likes of Crewe Alexandra, Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton Athletic and could be on his way back with recently-promoted QPR believed to be considerably interested.
Bougherra says that he is currently focused on June’s African Nations Cup qualifier in Morocco but after that will open talks with any clubs interested.
"Right now I have this important game in Morocco to play and that is all that is concerning me,” he told the Daily Record.
"It's too early to talk about my future as I still belong to Rangers, but if a Premier League club contacts me I will start discussions.
"After the game in Marrakech, my phone will begin to ring."
