And it adds that McClaren is 'poised to land' him in a cut-price deal, after the 30-year-old entered the final year of his contract at Preston.

Huntington was an ever present as Preston narrowly missed out on a play-off place last season and often captained Alex Neil's side.

But it is possible a move to QPR could tempt the former Newcastle United youngster, especially after the sale of teammate Greg Cunningham to Cardiff City on Wednesday.

Huntington could replace Nedum Onuoha at Rangers, after the 31-year-old's release at the end of last term.
