Rangers on the verge of a deal to sign M’Vila

QPR are on the verge of agreeing a deal to sign midfielder Yann M’Vila from Rennes.

Rangers boss Harry Redknapp, who wanted the player while Tottenham manager, is hoping to sign the 22-year-old along with Marseille striker Loic Remy.

M’Vila was recently reported to have turned Rangers down, but negotiations have been ongoing for some time and at the weekend Redknapp made his second visit to France to see him.

Arsenal have previously watched M’Vila, who has played for France 22 times but is banned from the national team until July 2014 after breaking a curfew to visit a nightclub ahead of an Under-21 game.

QPR were recently given permission to hold talks with Remy, as were Newcastle, after Marseille agreed to sell him.

Remy, 26, initially declined to even meet with Redknapp – prompting reports he was heading for Newcastle – but the R’s remained hopeful he would be persuaded to accept their lucrative offer rather than move to Tyneside.

Meanwhile, Rangers are yet to make improved offers for West Brom’s Jonas Olsson and Peter Odemwingie but plan to do so after Tuesday’s FA Cup third-round replay against the Baggies.

Albion turned down previous bids for the duo. Forward Odemwingie is keen to make the move, while Fulham and West Ham are interested in defender Olsson and are both monitoring the situation.

Meanwhile, DJ Campbell is wanted by Crystal Palace.
