Newly installed Loftus Road manager readies move for White Hart Lane bench warmer.
Queens Park Rangers are set to launch a bid for Tottenham midfielder Steven Pienaar, Sky Sports understands.
The South African schemer has become disillusioned with the lack of first-team chances at White Hart Lane.
Pienaar moved to Tottenham 12 months ago from Everton, but has started less than 10 league games in that time.
Now the 29-yaer-old is ready to quit the club and a number of sides have already shown an interest in taking him.
Former club Everton and Sunderland were strongly linked, but Sky Sports understands QPR are ready to emerge as favourites by making a firm offer.

Steven Pienaar’s career has definitely stagnated since his move to White Hart Lane and a move to Loftus Road may well help to re-ignite the winger’s career. The former Everton man moved to North London a year ago on the cheap as his Toffees deal was set to expire but any hope of a regular spot in Harry Redknapp’s first team has long since been extinguished and clearly Spurs are managing very well without the South African playing a role in the starting eleven.
Mark Hughes has been handed a large transfer war-chest and a move for the 29 year old wouldn’t take up much of those funds and the experienced attacker could well add a new dimension in the final third that may help to steer the West London side away from the drop zone.
