Queens Park Rangers are poised to agree a deal with Republic of Ireland international defender Richard Dunne, according to a report.

Queens Park Rangers are reportedly close to sealing a deal to sign former Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne.

The Republic of Ireland international is a free agent following his release by Paul Lambert's side at the end of last season.

Rangers have moved ahead of Doncaster Rovers to secure the signing of the 33-year-old, as manager Harry Redknapp sees the centre-back as the perfect replacement for the departed Chris Samba, reports Sky Sports News.

Dunne made 111 appearances in his four years at Villa Park.
