The experienced central defender’s deal at the Red Devils runs out at the end of June and with Ferdinand, 35, having not been offered a contract extension to remain at Old Trafford next season.

And is is believed that the ex-England international is being seriously tempted by the prospect of finishing his illustrious playing career with the west London club next season, which would enable Ferdinand to move back to the capital with his family, while also teaming up once again with QPR head coach Harry Redknapp, the man who gave the defender his Premier League debut while the duo were working together at West Ham United in 1996.

Meanwhile, it is also understood that Redknapp wants to recruit both Newcastle United’s Steven Taylor and West Bromwich Albion’s Jonas Olsson to be part of his back four this summer.
