The Football League Paper - - FRONT PAGE - By Chris Dunlavy

QPR are set to ap­point Jimmy Floyd Has­sel­baink as their next man­ager – and the for­mer Chelsea striker could be on the bench for next week­end’s clash with Leeds.

The Bur­ton Al­bion boss, 43, was first linked with the post on Wed­nes­day, prompt­ing the Brew­ers to in­sist no ap­proach had been made.

Pri­vately, how­ever, the Hoops are con­vinced the Dutch­man is keen on the move, with a source close to the club telling The FLP that the two-time Premier League golden boot win­ner is “al­most cer­tain” to re­place care­taker Neil Warnock.

“I can’t con­trol the spec­u­la­tion,” said Has­sel­baink last night. “It’s very flat­ter­ing and, don’t get me wrong, I’m an am­bi­tious man but I can only con­cen­trate on Bur­ton.”
