Queens Park Rangers reportedly agree a fee in the region of £8m for Cardiff City's Steven Caulker.

Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp has confirmed that the club has agreed a fee with Cardiff City for defender Steven Caulker.

The Hoops boss is planning to pair Caulker up with recent signing Rio Ferdinand after having a bid in the region of £8m accepted, Sky Sports News reports.

"We've agreed a fee for Steven Caulker, who I like very much," said Redknapp. "I had him at Tottenham as a player and he's done very well. I think for him to come and play with Rio would be a great experience for him.

"I'm looking to play with three central defenders this year. So [there are] those two and then I've got Richard Dunne, Nedum Onuoha, Clint Hill, I've got real good defenders here.

"I think for Steven Caulker to come in and be part of it with those experienced players will be great for him."

Cardiff paid Spurs more than £8m for Caulker last summer, a record fee for the Welsh club at the time.
