QPR plotting move to bring veteran winger back to the club for third spell



Queens Park Rangers could re-sign Wayne Routledge for a third time.

Swansea City and QPR are locked in negotiations over a possibility of Routledge moving on loan to Loftus Road and this deal could go ahead, depending on finances, reliable football journalist Alan Nixon reports.

Nixon tweeted saying: “SWANSEA. Routledge and QPR could be done if the figures are right.”

Routledge has had two previous spells with QPR, firstly between 2008 and 2010 in the Championship and then again on loan from Newcastle United in the 2010/11 season.

The 33-year-old has been with Swansea for seven years, racking up a total of 22 goals in over 230 appearances.

The veteran winger has a total of more than 500 senior appearances under his belt during his career, scoring 50 goals in that time.

The former Crystal Palace, Tottenham, Portsmouth, Fulham, Aston Villa, Cardiff and Newcastle winger could be set to return to West London to join QPR again for the Championship campaign.

The Verdict

Routledge may be past his peak but he is still a very decent Championship winger.

His running causes problems for full-backs and he knows where the net is.

QPR is a familiar environment for the former England under-21 international so he could thrive at the club.
