QPR believe Chelsea man is the solution to their defensive woes - report

Queens Park Rangers are reportedly lining up a January loan move for Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas.

QPR's performance levels may have bucked the trend and impressed considerably lately - but that is still doing their points tally no favours whatsoever.

Harry Redknapp's side are bottom of the Premier League and goals are still being conceded regularly - even if not as frequently as before.

So what's the answer for west London side?

According to the London Evening Standard, it could involve another west London side - Chelsea.

Indeed, QPR are said to be lining up a loan move for Chelsea defender Tomas Kalas in January.

The R's will face heavy competition for the 21-year-old's signature but Redknapp reportedly sees the centre-back as his man.

Experience would certainly not be one of Kalas's strong points but perhaps, if the report proves true, Rangers are now looking at a shift in their recruitment policy?

The experience of Rio Ferdinand does not appear to have proven of much value so far at Loftus Road, while fellow centre-back Richard Dunne is also 35. Steven Caulker, 22, looks to offer a lot more in the long term and Chelsea's Kalas could provide a similar youthful outlook - even if he is only a temporary signing.
