QPR manager Harry Redknapp hopes to tie up the signing of former Fulham man Chris Baird this week.
The Northern Ireland international, 31, has been training with the R’s and will be offered a one-year contract with the option of a further 12 months.
West London Sport recently revealed that Baird was set for a move to Loftus Road.
And Redknapp said: “I like Chris Baird. He knows what he’s doing and he’s a good player. I’d like to do something with him.”
Baird, a free agent after being released by Fulham at the end of last season, made more than 100 Premier League starts during a six-year spell at Craven Cottage.
