QPR have Ward bid rejected and discuss Freeman deal

QPR have had a £1.2m bid for Danny Ward rejected by Rotherham and have resumed discussions with Bristol City over a potential deal to sign Luke Freeman.

Forward Ward, 25, has scored 10 goals for Rotherham this season and a number of Championship clubs are showing an interest in signing him.

Ward began his career at Bolton and had a four-year spell at Huddersfield before joining Rotherham in 2015, initially on loan. He scored four goals for the Millers last season.

Rangers, who sold Sebastian Polter last week, are keen to sign at least a couple of forwards during this month’s transfer window.

They have offered Bristol City £250,000 for winger Freeman, whose contract expires at the end of the season, when he would be able to leave Ashton Gate on a Bosman free transfer unless he signs a new deal.

Rangers will look to sign Freeman, 24, on a pre-contract agreement if the Robins, who have rejected the bid, refuse to sell.
