Brentford's Bidwell: A pricey R's target
The Hoops' move for Brentford defender Jake Bidwell is said to have stalled after the Bees quoted the above asking price, despite the 23-year-old having 12 months left on his deal.

The R's are said to be targeting European-based bargains - with their focus on France and Italy in particular - as well as free agents from the Football League, with Burton Albion's Damien McCrory listed as a potential left-back target last month.

The report claims Hasselbaink may also consider academy graduate Cole Kpekawa as a Bidwell alternative, in another bid to limit his side's expenditure.
QPR, who released Armand Traore and saw Paul Konchesky return to Leicester City, could also call upon ex-Liverpool man Jack Robinson.
