Newly promoted QPR are close to signing central defender Joleon Lescott. The out-of-contract Manchester City defender has also held talks with West Ham, but they were put off by his wage demands. QPR boss Harry Redknapp will also sign Wolves’ on-loan striker Kevin Doyle in a £1m deal. Wolves are ready to sell, as they want Doyle off their wage bill. Doyle joined Rangers on loan in January and scored two goals in 11 appearances.
