Pin It

Mark Hughes will hold more talks with QPR on Tuesday about taking over as manager after initial positive negotiations on Monday.

The former Wales boss is favourite to replace Neil Warnock, who was sacked on Sunday, with QPR 17th in the league.

Hughes, speaking outside Loftus Road, said: “There’s a lot more to discuss and we’ll wait until the morning.

“We’re still discussing the ideas the club have. I’m pleased with how it’s gone but nothing is confirmed yet.”

Hughes, who has been out of the game since leaving Fulham in June, added: “I’ve got to think very carefully about what’s been said today.

“We have to discuss a number of things but it went well.

“It’s about thinking things over and we’ll see what happens in the morning.

“I’m an ambitious manager and hopefully the next club I’m at can match those ambitions.”

Chief executive Philip Beard said that he hoped the club could make an appointment in the next 48 hours.

“We are working extremely hard to bring in the right person,” Beard told BBC Radio 5 Live earlier on Monday.

“I’m hoping we have someone in place in advance of our game against Newcastle [on Sunday].”

Beard agreed that Welshman Hughes, who also has Premier League experience with Blackburn and Manchester City, has the kind of background that the club are looking for, although they have “three or four” candidates in mind.
