Tottenham have accepted a bid in excess of £9 million for defender Michael Dawson, according to Sky Sports.
The England international has captained the club in the past and grown in stature at White Hart Lane since signing from Nottingham Forest, but is thought to be surplus to requirements.
Andre Villas-Boas left Dawson out of his match-day squad for the opening day defeat to Newcastle, with Younes Kaboul and William Gallas preferred by the Portuguese coach.
With new signing Jan Vertonghen and promising youngster Steven Caulker also available at centre-half, AVB is ready to offload Dawson before the transfer window ends.
It is believed that QPR, who lost 5-0 to Swansea at home on the opening day of this campaign, are the frontrunners for Dawson’s signature, with Spurs accepting a bid.
It is now up to the player to agree personal terms with the Loftus Road outfit to facilitate a move.
