Mark Hughes is hopeful that new faces will arrive at QPR before the transfer window closes next week - but concedes Tottenham's Michael Dawson may not be one of them.

No fewer than eight players have arrived already and more are on the horizon, with negotiations understood to be under way with the likes of Dawson, Real Madrid's Ricardo Carvalho and Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar.

On Dawson's potential switch to Loftus Road, Hughes said: "At the moment it is not where I'd hoped it would be. It may change. Obviously we've still got days left until the window closes so it might be revisited, but at the moment it is not in a place we think we can progress. There was an issue with personal terms."
