Queens Park Rangers defender Angel Rangel signed a short-term deal in the summer, running through to January. Manager Steve McClaren is keen to extend the veteran’s deal at Loftus Road, but Championship duo Nottingham Forest and Norwich City are both considering moves for the defender.
Daily Mirror journalist David Anderson revealed on Twitter that Queens Park Rangers are not the only club looking to offer former Swansea City defender Angel Rangel a deal beyond January, with Championship rivals Nottingham Forest and Norwich City both interested in bringing in the 36-year-old.

However, attractive offers from American MLS sides DC United and New York City could tempt the defender stateside after 11 and a half years in the United Kingdom with Swansea City and now Steve McClaren’s Queens Park Rangers.
After spending six years playing in his native country Spain, the experienced defender joined Swansea City in 2007, when The Swans were sitting in League One. Over the course of 11 years, Rangel made a massive 367 appearances in South Wales, helping Swansea up to the Premier League in the 2010/11 season. He was named captain of The Jacks in November 2017, after midfielder Leon Britton retired to become the Assistant Manager of the club.
If the Spaniard doesn’t renew his deal in January, he will be available on a free transfer for clubs to pick up on the cheap. His strong start to the season will mean he will have many potential suitors, despite his age.
