Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp is hoping to secure the signing of Tottenham's Scott Parker before the end of the week, according to the London Evening Standard.
The midfielder is surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane and manager Andre Villas-Boas is willing to let the England international go for around £3.5m.
The move to Loftus Road would see the 32-year-old reunited with Harry Redknapp after he signed Parker at Spurs.
Parker, 32, has also been linked back to his former club West Ham but his salary of £70,000-a-week has been a problem for both clubs.
But negotiations with QPR are said to have stepped up in the past few days, with the deal looking likely to be finalised by the end of the week.
The midfielder's career with the Lilywhites suffered after a major Achilles injury which ruled him out for four months.
And the former Spurs manager is looking to bring in key experience as he looks to get QPR back to the Premier League at the first time of asking.
