QPR have joined the hunt for Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Josh Windass.
And they are willing to double his wages.
Rangers are rivalling Millwall and Birmingham in the transfer race.
Wednesday are holding out for a staggering £5million transfer fee.
Windass, 27, and several other players had the option of cancelling their contracts in a row over unpaid salaries.
However, that situation was finally sorted out last week.
Meanwhile, the EFL are set for a fierce transfer embargo crackdown on clubs.
And that has put Wayne Rooney’s Derby and the Owls on red alert.
Rams face NEW EFL punishments, despite winning the fight to stay in the Championship.
Relegated Wednesday are also ‘under watch’ over late payments to players.
As many as TEN other clubs could also be brought into line for Financial Fair Play issues as a hawkish group of chairmen push the EFL to throw their weight about.
The Rams will be under severe signing restrictions in the summer transfer window.
And that will hurt Rooney’s hopes of putting together a new squad.
The Owls finally paid overdue wages but this will also affect their ability to sign new faces.
