QPR playmaker Adel Taarabt is closing in on a loan move to Fulham, as Harry Redknapp's side continues to offload their assets.

The Morocco international is said to be keen on a move back to the Premier League and following reported interest for the player's services from Martin Jol's Fulham, Harry Redknapp will sanction the player's departure.

Martin Jol is acquainted with the 24-year-old from his Spurs days, as the duo worked together during his tenure at White Hart Lane.

It is thought that Jol is keen to be reunited with Taarabt, whom he is said to be a big fan of.

Jol has tried to sign Taarabt twice before after his sacking from White Hart Lane, but failed.

However, Taarabt's imminent departure looks to be a temporary one, with Fulham looking to secure a season-long loan deal for the 24-year-old.

Advanced talks are said to have taken place between the West London rivals, and Taarabt is expected to have a medical sometime this week.

It is thought a move may even be sealed by today, as Fulham are eager to add to the mere three signings they have made this summer.

It is hoped Taarabt, capped 15 times by Morocco, can bring some creativity to Jol's outfit following their dire form at the end of last season.

Taarabt has made over 150 appearances for the Loftus Road team, with his most impressive performances in the 2011/12 season helping Rangers to the Championship title, scoring 19 goals. 

This goalscoring form made him the target of high bids, but the Morocco international stayed at Loftus Road, although he has not made a memorable mark in the Premier League as the R's slumped to relegation in their second season.
