QPR's bid to bring Real Madrid's Esteban Granero to Loftus Road edged a step closer today after they agreed a fee for the midfielder with the Spanish champions.

Esteban Granero: Looks set for QPR switch

Acquiring Granero would be a huge coup for the west Londoners, who have been the busiest of all the Barclays Premier League clubs in the summer window.

The 25-year-old has impressed on the few chances he has had at the Bernabeu after moving from Getafe in July 2009.

The deal to sign Granero is subject to the player agreeing personal terms and passing a medical.

Should he do so, then he will join the likes of goalkeeper Julio Cesar and midfielders Park Ji-sung and Junior Hoilett in signing for Mark Hughes' men since the end of last season.
