QPR’s Neil Warnock has launched an ambitious bid to sign Manchester City outcast Nigel De Jong on loan.

The Rangers boss is ready to tempt Roberto Mancini with an offer to bring the Netherlands international midfielder to Loftus Road for the rest of the season.

De Jong is on a list of targets for the January transfer window compiled by the Premier League new boys, who want his help in avoiding an instant return to the Championship.

The 26-year-old has not started a Premier League game for City since November, but did appear as a substitute in the defeat at Chelsea on Monday.

De Jong’s City contract expires at the end of next season and wants the club to offer him a new deal.

But he has struggled to battle his way into Mancini’s starting XI, and Warnock will make an audacious attempt to land him when the window opens next month.

Warnock will be backed with substantial funds by chairman Tony Fernandes, as he also seeks a new striker and another centre-half .

He said: “The board know we need some more players and they have been very supportive. We are on the lookout for four or five.

“I’m not saying they’re all going to be big-name signings, but we need numbers in the squad.”
