Skysports.com understands Crystal Palace are eyeing a move to lure QPR midfielder Shaun Derry back to the club.
The 33-year-old only joined QPR last summer after leaving Palace, but the Eagles are keen on a reunion with the player.
Derry played a key role in helping Rangers to promotion to the Premier League last season and he was promised a new deal at Loftus Road.
However, those talks have stalled and the news has alerted Palace who could be ready to offer the experienced campaigner a return to Selhurst Park.
Derry has enjoyed three different spells at Palace during his career and Eagles boss Dougie Freedman is keen to add to his former team-mate to his squad for next season.
Freedman sees his experience as a key addition to his young squad and he is hoping to persuade Derry to give up the chance of Premier League football next season to help Palace in the Championship.
