QPR are among a number of clubs interested in Swindon captain Nathan Thompson, it is claimed.

Thompson’s contract expires this summer and he will be available on a Bosman free transfer if he does not sign a new deal at the County Ground.

Sky Sports News HQ believe the 26-year-old defender will move on and claim the clubs keen on him include QPR.

Ipswich, Charlton, Rotherham and Portsmouth are also said to be interested in him.

Thompson has been with Swindon his entire career and has made 167 league appearances for the Robins.
