Dunne closing in on QPR move

Republic of Ireland defender Richard Dunne is close to agreeing a deal with Queens Park Rangers, ESPN understands.

The 33 year old was released by Aston Villa last month, having missed the whole of the 2012/13 campaign through injury.

He has been on the radar of several clubs, including Hull City and Celtic, but looks set to resurrect his playing career at Loftus Road, as the Hoops look to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

Having begun his career as a schoolboy with Everton, Dunne moved to Manchester City in 2000, where he racked up almost three hundred league appearances in nine years, and was named the clubs Player of the Year four times in succession between 2005 and 2008.

Martin O’Neill took him to Aston Villa in 2009, though with current manager Paul Lambert’s focus on youth development, he was always going to struggle to re-establish himself in the first team.

QPR manager Harry Redknapp has been on the lookout for a new centre back since Christopher Samba agreed a deal to return to Russia.
