QPR chase Ramage - Queens Park Rangers will make a £1million move in the summer for Peter Ramage, the Newcastle United defender. A QPR scout watched Ramage make his first appearance for seven months after a knee injury for Newcastle's reserves against their Bolton Wanderers counterparts on Tuesday. "

QPR will not, however, pursue any interest in Luís Figo, the Portugal striker. A club source said: “He would cost £50,000 a week and, at 35, how much hunger would he have for the Championship?” The Times

Goal.com - Figo Injured Yet Again
Inter Milan winger Luis Figo has suffered yet another injury setback.
The 35-year-old had just managed to recover from a lengthy injury, but has tweaked a hamstring in training and will now have to sit out tonight's away fixture against Genoa.
It is too early to say whether he will be back available for the visit of Juventus this weekend, but he will be desperate to get back on the football pitch again after several weeks of off-the-field polemics.
Figo has been involved in a heavy bout of damage control by insisting that his relationship with Inter Coach Roberto Mancini is just fine, and denying reports that he refused to come on against Liverpool.
He has also admitted to being increasingly annoyed by the persistent rumours surrounding his future, the latest of which he has felt compelled to deny has him tipped for a sensational move to English Championship side QPR.
