Ipswich Town striker Jonathan Walters is resisting interest from QPR for a move to the Premiership.

The Daily Mail says QPR are prepared to pay £3million-plus for transfer-seeking Ipswich forward Walters.

But they are not guaranteed to clinch his capture because the Birkenhead-born player is looking to return north.

Another complication is that the ambitious Hoops cannot match Walters' current deal, which still has two years to run.

Walters, 26, prefers the option of a move to Stoke City or West Bromwich Albion but the Premier League clubs' offers fall way short of Ipswich's £4m valuation.

The Tractor Boys insist he is going nowhere until they receive the right offer and the stalemate could yet rebound on the player.
