QPR unable to agree deal for French winger

QPR: Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Les Ferdinand

QPR are ready to end their interest in Metz winger Yeni Ngbakoto after having a second bid turned down by the French club.

Rangers offered €1.25m (just under £1m) for the 24-year-old after having an initial bid rejected and do not plan to make another improved offer.

They also want Sehrou Guirassy, 20, but Lille are demanding a big fee for the France Under-21 striker after he impressed during the recent Toulon Tournament.

Brighton have shown some interest in Guirassy, who spent part of last season on loan at Auxerre.

Meanwhile, QPR remain keen to sign Brentford left-back Jake Bidwell and have made a second bid for Huddersfield central defender Joel Lynch, but the Yorkshire club have again indicated that they are reluctant to sell.

Both players are about to enter the final year of their contract.
