According to TEAMtalk, Queens Park Rangers are one of three Championship teams to have registered an interest in signing Villarreal left back Bojan Jokic.

Jokic, 30, may be familiar to some Championship fans having spent the second half of last season on loan at Nottingham Forest, where he made 21 appearances before returning to parent club Villareal.

The Slovenian international – who featured against England last week – is finding first-team football hard to come by at Villarreal, as he's stuck behind Jaume Costa and Jose Angel in the pecking order at left back.

Jokic won't be happy with his lack of football, and reports today suggest that he could leave the Spanish side in order to return to the Championship.

TEAMtalk report that three Championship clubs – Bristol City, Norwich City and Queens Park Rangers – are all keen to sign Jokic during the January transfer window as he seeks playing time.

With Jokic out of contract at the end of the season, it's claimed that teams are looking to bring the left back to England once again, with clubs across Europe even believed to be interested.

Bristol City already have Scott Golbourne and Joe Bryan who can play at left back, so any more left back arrivals could mean that Bryan is pushed into midfield, whilst Norwich have international stars Martin Olsson and Robbie Brady who can play at left back – though questions over Olsson's future could leave the Canaries to look at a player like Jokic.

Finally, QPR signed left back Jake Bidwell over the summer, but Jokic would offer more experience at left back than Jack Robinson, who played just once for QPR last season and hasn't featured this term.
