QPR are close to signing former Swansea City right-back Angel Rangel on a free transfer, according to The Sun.

The experienced defender has been training with the Hoops and is set to join them to help bolster their defence.

The Championship side are also trying to pursue a deal to sign Swansea winger Wayne Routledge, according to the journalist Alan Nixon on Twitter.

QPR have lost their opening two fixtures and after a frustrating transfer window, they are looking to delve into the free agent/loan market to bring some more quality into their ranks.

Rangel, who is 35-years-old, left Swansea at the end of the season following their relegation to the Championship. He had spent eleven years at the Liberty Stadium and played 374 games for them. Prior to moving to the Swans, Rangel spent time at Girona, Sant Andreu and Terrassa.

His former Swansea teammate Wayne Routledge could be joining him at Loftus Road. The 33-year-old has played for QPR before on two occasions and could be set for a return to the London side.

Routledge would offer QPR another option going forward and his experience would come in handy for Steve McClaren’s side. He is an established winger in the Championship and has previously spent time at Crystal Palace, Tottenham Hotspur, Portsmouth, Aston Villa, Fulham, Cardiff City, Newcastle United and Swansea.

Rangel and Routledge would be two very shrewd signings for QPR and would bolster their ranks.
