Norwich City midfielder Graham Dorrans is being touted with Championship clubs QPR and Burnley ahead of the January transfer window.
Alex Neil's first summer signing from West Brom has sat out the most recent Premier League games against Manchester City and Swansea City but has made 12 appearances this campaign after an impressive loan stint last season in the club's Championship promotion success.
The Daily Mail claim managerless QPR are tracking Dorrans ahead of a potential New Year move. The 28-year-old was also heavily linked with the Clarets before opting for Carrow Road and Sean Dyche's promotion-chasers could be another possible destination if Neil is prepared to sanction a surprise loan move.
Dorrans has got himself back in the Scotland squad this season after playing in the Euro 2016 qualifiers against Poland and Gibraltar but has missed out recently with Neil opting for the ballast of Youssouf Mulumbu, Gary O'Neil and Alex Tettey in central midfield.
Meanwhile, City could face intense competition for Sheffield Wednesday's central defender Tom Lees after being linked last week with a £7m January raid on the Owls. Premier League rivals Aston Villa, Newcastle and Sunderland have all been linked with the highly-rated 24-year-old who has been a key figure in Wednesday's rise to the fringe of the Championship play-offs and the quarter-finals of the Capital One Cup.
