Michael Dawson will hold talks with QPR in the next 24-48 hours as the west London club look to tie up a deal for the Tottenham defender and Real Madrid centre-back Ricardo Carvalho.

Despite landing a number of high-profile signings this summer, QPR began their season with a 5-0 home loss to Swansea on Saturday.

The defeat, which came in front of Hoops owner Tony Fernandes, looks to have convinced Rangers boss Mark Hughes that he needs defensive reinforcements and the Welshman today agreed a season-long loan deal with Real Madrid to sign former Chelsea defender Carvalho.
