Skysports.com understands Queens Park Rangers are closing in on the capture of Leicester City striker DJ Campbell.
The former Birmingham City man is not believed to be part of manager Nigel Pearson's plans and is expected to move on.
Campbell spent the second half of last season in the Championship with Blackpool, scoring nine league goals from 20 starts.
It now seems as though R's boss Jim Magilton is close to bringing the 27-year-old to the ambitious Loftus Road outfit.
Keeper on trial
Meanwhile, Magilton is also running the rule over experienced keeper Andy Marshall after handing him a trial.
The former Norwich, Ipswich and Millwall shot-stopper is out of contract after being released by Coventry over the summer.
Marshall is set to feature in The R's pre-season friendly against Forest Green Rovers as Magilton mulls over offering terms.
