QPR are trying to secure a work permit for Junior Hoilett before completing the Canadian's signing from Blackburn.

The forward is keen to join Mark Hughes' side, who are on tour in Asia, and the clubs are discussing compensation.

As revealed by Sportsmail last week, an agreement is likely to be reached soon, but QPR officials want confirmation of Hoilett's work permit before finalising the deal.

The move is great news for Rangers' boss Hughes who thought he had lost out in the battle for Hoilett's signature.

Borussia Monchengladbach looked certain to sign him after Hoilett flew out to Germany for talks.
