Loftus Road side set sights on Etihad Stadium defender.
QPR have made an £8million move for Manchester City centre-back Joleon Lescott.

Harry Redknapp will be buoyed by recent form displayed by his QPR side but knows all to well that in order to keep the West London side in the Engish top tier he needs to strengthen his defence and therefore interest in Man City defender Joleon Lescott is a sensible option to resolve the problem.
Though QPR secured a clean sheet against Chelsea in their recent win at Stamford Bridge, as well as doing so in their return fixture at Loftus Road, the Super Hoops have leaked in 36 goals in 21 Premier League matches this season so could certainly do with tightening up at the back.
Man City may well see Lescott as a less pivotal member of the Etihad Stadium squad following the arrival of young Serbian Matija Nastasic but Roberto Mancini is less likely to listen to offers for the former Everton man given that Kolo Toure is away on African Nations Cup duty.
This source claims that the 30 year old England man is leaning more towards a possible return to Goodison Park.
