QPR consider King deal

Published Add your comment

QPR manager Neil Warnock is considering offering a deal to striker Marlon King.

The 30-year-old finished a nine month prison sentence for assault last week, and is looking for a way back into football. Warnock, whose side opened the npower Championship season with a 4-0 win over Barnsley on Saturday, has admitted he could be the man to give the former Hull forward a chance.

"We haven't got a 20-goal-a-season man and you do need one," he told the Daily Mail.

"He has served his time and we live in a country that we say when they have finished their time, give them another opportunity.

"He is a good player and I think he will score goals. I am not condoning what he has done but I look at some of the other cases of players who have got into trouble in the past.

"People have killed people and they never got the stick this lad has got. Whoever takes him, he will want to prove himself."
