Tim Sherwood had been thought to be in line to take the position at Loftus Road until he recently pulled out of the running.

It is thought that with only five months of experience as a manager on his CV, Sherwood was not the preferred choice of club chairman Tony Fernandes, unconvinced at his lack of experience.

The former Tottenham Hotspur boss, who apparently was the favourite of QPR director of football Les Ferdinand, is said to have wanted a £3 million contract, but was unconvinced at the club’s strategy for the future with relegation a real possibility and many key players out of contract.

On Tuesday afternoon Tony Fernandes tweeted, “Think I have got my dream manager. Not what anyone thinks. Take a while. Still a bit to go but I’m very happy. Press all wrong.”

Michael Laudrup is now manager of Qatari side Lekhwiya after his dismissal from Swansea after a 20 month spell in which he won the Capital One Cup.

The Dane apparently ‘lost the dressing room’, making his successful time at the Welsh club go sour.

Rs management have apparently considered leaving caretaker boss Chris Ramsey in charge for the rest of the season should their favoured candidate prefer to wait until their fate is determined.

Ramsey secured QPR’s first away win of the season on Tuesday night with a 2-0 triumph over Sunderland. Goals from Leroy Fer and Bobby Zamora saw them climb out of the Premier League relegation zone.
