EXCLUSIVE: QPR lead Wednesday, Forest in race for holding midfielder

Mark Warburton TEAMtalk

Queens Park Rangers are leading the chase for Cameroonian midfielder Wato Kuate, TEAMtalk understands.

The 25-year-old is currently a free agent after leaving Finnish side RoPS.

Kuate, who came through Manchester City’s academy, is now looking to move back to the UK, which he can do as he holds Portuguese citizenship.

After leaving City, Kuate spent time playing in Italy, Israel and Turkey and also had a spell in Scotland with Dundee United.

Now a number of teams have been alerted to Kuate’s availability and are showing an interest.

Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham and Nottingham Forest are all keen, but we understand QPR are in talks and are ready to bring him on trial possibly this week.

Adomah back and TEAMtalk told you first

Meanwhile, TEAMtalk told you last month that Albert Adomah was returning to his boyhood club.

We exclusively revealed that the 32-year-old was heading for a dream move to Loftus Road.

The QPR fan was released by Nottingham Forest and last week penned a two-year deal with the Rs.

Mark Warburton told the club’s website: “It is fantastic that we have been able to bring Albert in.

“We only have Geoff Cameron and Lee Wallace above 30 in the dressing room, so I am delighted to add Albert. He will provide a wealth of experience.

“I spoke with people at Nottingham Forest who spoke glowingly about his professionalism, his character, and what he brings on and off the pitch.”
