QPR are weighing up a move for free agent goalkeeper Heinz Lindner.

The Hoops are set to invite the 29-year-old stopper for a week training, according to a report by the Daily Mail.

QPR currently have Joe Lumley, Liam Kelly and Dillon Barnes as their current goalkeeping options but could explore Lindner as an option to add more competitions and depth into that department.

Lindner, who is an Austria international with 22 caps to his name, has played over 300 games in his career and is experienced.

The 6ft 2inc ‘keeper started his career Austria Wien and rose up through the youth ranks at the Franz Hoor Stadium.

He initially became their first choice ‘keeper for their reserve side in the second tier as a youngster before breaking into the first team in 2009. Lindner went onto play over 200 games for the 24-time Austrian champions.

He left for a fresh challenge in Germany to join Eintracht Frankfurt and spent two seasons with the Bundesliga but was used as a back-up goalkeeper.

Lindner then moved to Swiss Super League outfit Grasshoppers in 2017 and made 75 appearances altogether before leaving them on a free transfer at the end of last season.

Mark Warburton’s side will cast an eye over him and evaluate whether he would be worth a punt on a free transfer.
