Hughes to make Villa an offer for Given

QPR are planning to make Aston Villa an offer for goalkeeper Shay Given.

The Republic of Ireland stalwart, 36, played under R’s boss Mark Hughes at Manchester City.

Given has four years of his Villa contract left to run but Rangers believe they may be able to take him to Loftus Road this summer.

He is one of a number of keepers they have identified as a possible signing. Last season the club also made enquiries about Birmingham’s England Under-21 international Jack Butland.

The writing is on the wall for Paddy Kenny, who is entering the final year of his QPR contract and has not been approached about a new deal since Hughes took over as manager.
