QPR are hoping to solve their problems in defence with the season-long loan signing of Tommy Elphick from Aston Villa.

Rangers kept their first clean sheet of the season against Wigan last Saturday but had previously conceded 13 goals in their first four games.

Elphick won the Championship title as Bournemouth captain in 2015 but has made just 31 appearances for Villa since joining in 2016.

The 30-year-old defender spent the second half of last season on loan with Reading, making four appearances.
