QPR's interest water under the Bridge as Hoops are put off by star's wages
Wayne Bridge's plan to resurrect his football career is limbo after Queens Park Rangers cooled their interest in the Manchester City misfit.
Sportsmail revealed earlier this month how QPR were interested in taking the left-back on loan to replace Armand Traore, who in on Africa Cup of Nations duty with Senegal.
Sacked QPR manager Neil Warnock had earmarked the former England defender as a possible answer to his left-back quandary.

And owner Tony Fernandes had contacted Bridge’s representatives regarding a possible loan move.
But the Loftus Road club’s interest in Bridge has cooled since Mark Hughes’ appointment as new manager.
Hughes worked with Bridge at Manchester City, but the defender’s mammoth 95,000-per-week wages is a stumbling block.
Wolves made a tentative enquiry to Bridge’s adviser Aaron Lincoln earlier this month, but their interest has not progressed.

The news leaves Bridge, who has been
told he has no future at City, unclear over his next move as he looks to
revive his flagging career.
Bridge has played just 78 minutes of football this season, in the Carling Cup third-round win over Birmingham on September 15.
In an exclusive interview with Sportsmail, Bridge revealed he is trying to agree a severance package with City to release him from the club.
