Dutchman Chery undergoing QPR medical

Tjaronn Chery is undergoing a medical at QPR after the club triggered a release clause in his FC Groningen contract.

Chery, 27, was on Rangers’ list of targets after the end of last season and a move to sign him was sanctioned following confirmation of Raheem Sterling’s transfer.

A sell-on clause agreed when Liverpool signed Sterling in 2010 means Rangers will get 20% of the fee paid by Manchester City for the England international.

An attacking midfielder with an impressive goalscoring record, Chery’s previous clubs include FC Twente and Den Haag.

A number of Premier League clubs have been monitoring him and Aston Villa recently approached Groningen but were unable to agree a deal.

Dutch media had claimed that QPR had a bid for him rejected and that he is keen to play for a top-flight team.

However, Rangers have been confident of a deal and hope to wrap up the signing in the coming days.
