QPR defender Ryan Nelsen has been appointed head coach at Major League Soccer club Toronto FC but has not yet left the west London club.

The 35-year-old defender has been one of the few players to shine for the west Londoners this season, having joined in June following spells at Blackburn and Tottenham.

Nelsen has made 21 appearances in all competitions for QPR but has requested to enter dialogue with manager Harry Redknapp to discuss when he will join his new club.
