Hughes enjoys positive talks with QPR but no decision yet on if he'll succeed Warnock
Mark Hughes faces more talks with QPR tomorrow before he decides whether to succeed Neil Warnock as manager of the Barclays Premier League club.
Hughes was at Loftus Road with advisor Kia Joorabchian on Monday for talks with chief executive Philip Beard about taking over at the west London club. He revealed the talks had gone well but he had not yet agreed to become the club's next manager.
Former Wales, Manchester City, Blackburn and Fulham manager Hughes has been out of work since his departure from Craven Cottage in June.

Although the likes of Gianfranco
Zola, Rafael Benitez, Roberto Di Matteo, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Steve
Bruce have been linked with the position, Hughes has been the leading
candidate from the off.
Asked if he had agreed to become the
manager, Hughes said: 'We're not at that point at this moment. We are
still discussing the ideas the club have and I have to think very
carefully about what's been said today and overnight and then we will
come back in the morning.
'I am pleased with how it's gone but
nothing is confirmed yet. We still have a lot to discuss but it went
really well today. We will see what happens,' he told reporters outside

'There's a will to get to where we
both feel comfortable with what's ahead. I have to be clear in my mind
this is the right decision for me and QPR have to be confident in their
'One factor that concerns me is that I am an ambitious manager and have to make sure the club meets those ambitions.'
Hughes admitted he had liked what he was told.
'It's interesting what everyone here
has had to say. It's an interesting project. There's still a lot to
discuss but it went really well today.'
