Report: QPR to offer six-month contract to Marco Motta

QPR are hoping to sign free agent Marco Motta this month.

QPR are lining up a contract offer for Marco Motta, West London Sport reports.

The 29-year-old right-back has been on trial with the Rs recently, and has done enough to earn a permanent move to Loftus Road.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink was keen to assess his fitness, with Motta having been out of contract since the summer after leaving Watford, having helped them to promotion to the Premier League.

He played nine times in the Championship for the Hornets, doing little to impress and earn an extension to his deal for this season, but he wants to remain in England.

QPR are set to offer him a deal until the end of the season, and the report indicates they will assess the situation at the end of this campaign. They want a long-term solution, and 29-year-old Motta does not look to be that player.

Motta has also played for Udinese, Roma and Juventus, and was capped once by the senior Italian national team in 2010.
