Peterborough United are close to signing QPR midfielder Michael Doughty.

The Peterborough Telegraph understands the 24 year-old has travelled to Spain with the first-team squad for pre-season training.

The Peterborough Telegraph revealed Posh interest in the 24 year-old in May, but the move was put on hold as QPR sorted out some financial fairplay issues with the Football League.

But QPR manager Ian Holloway has now told Posh they can sign Doughty for a small fee - he has a year left on his contract - if they can agree personal terms.

Posh director of football Barry Fry revealed in May Doughty was on ‘good money’ at Loftus Road.

Doughty, a Welsh under 19 and under 21 cap, has started just six matches in six years at QPR.

He has scored while on loan for Swindon against Posh at the ABAX Stadium in each of the last two seasons.
