QPR plan January swoop for Bassong

QPR boss Neil Warnock is weighing up a January move for Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong.
Warnock almost signed the centre-back before the summer transfer deadline, but the deal fell through when Spurs failed to land Bolton stopper Gary Cahill.
Hoops owner Tony Fernandes is set to discuss targets with Warnock at a meeting on Thursday.
“We have already begun talking about what we are going to do in January and have a number of ideas,” said Warnock.
“There are so many things that are possibilities and if I ask for a certain player, the board will support me. At the moment, a striker and a defender are my two priorities.
“We are looking abroad, as well as in this country. We would be silly not to, because Tony has all these contacts.
“We haven’t got a big enough squad, but we just have to keep going now until January and look to improve again.”
Warnock added: “Tony has given me great support. I couldn’t wish for more backing from him since he arrived.
“People should know that we are still in the infancy of what we are trying to do.”
