Hull City join the race to sign unsettled Queens Park Rangers midfielder Adel Taarabt.

Hull City manager Steve Bruce has reportedly decided to launch a surprise summer swoop for Queens Park Rangers playmaker Adel Taarabt.

The Moroccan midfielder is surplus to requirements at Loftus Road and was sent home from pre-season training in Devon last week.

Bruce is willing to consider a season-long loan deal or a permanent move for the 24-year-old and will make a formal bid this week, according to The Sun.

Marseille have also been linked with a loan move for Taarabt, who has admitted that he is keen on a switch to southern France.

Taarabt has two years left on his current QPR contract, with a salary believed to be in the region of £50,000 a week.
