Hughes ponders move for Aston Villa man

QPR have been offered the chance to sign Aston Villa midfielder Stephen Ireland.

Ireland played under Rangers boss Mark Hughes at Manchester City and would like to be reunited with him at Loftus Road.

A possible deal to sign the 25-year-old was discussed following Hughes’ appointment last season, but the idea was shelved.

It is believed Villa would consider offers for Ireland, who joined them in 2010 in an exchange deal involving James Milner.

Hughes is considering a number of possible signings and is keen to capture at least one midfielder in addition to Samba Diakite.

The permanent signing of Diakite from Nancy, which was agreed in January, can go ahead now Rangers have stayed in the Premier League and is expected to be rubber-stamped in the next few days.
