The Spurs midfielder has found himself out of favour at White Hart Lane in recent years, having been sent out on disappointing loan spells to Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest. It seems now, however, he will finally get a permanent move away. The deal had initially been suggested to be a loan deal but it seems that it is in fact a permanent contract.
The deal is one of many QPR have made in the window, and their second today after securing Christopher Samba from Anzhi Makhachkala earlier in the day. Harry Redknapp previously worked with the player when he was Tottenham boss and has made him one of several signings to help his side beat the drop.
