QPR pursuing deals for Ward and Freeman

QPR will make another offer for Danny Ward after having a £1.2m bid rejected by Rotherham.

Rangers failed with an initial offer for the forward but believe a deal can be done – and have resumed discussions with Bristol City over a potential deal to sign Luke Freeman.

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.
