Football in Brief: QPR defender Jose Bosingwa on way to Turkey; Mackay hopes to get Capoue


Bosingwa on way to Turkey

QPR defender Jose Bosingwa has left the club by mutual consent and is now set to join Turkish side Trabzonspor.

The 30-year-old former Chelsea right-back moved to Loftus Road as a free agent last summer and made 23 starts.

Meanwhile, the Sunderland midfielder Alfred N’Diaye has joined Turkish club Eskisehirspor on a season-long loan deal – just seven months after he joined for £3.8m from Bursaspor.

Cardiff City: Mackay hopes to get Capoue

Cardiff City are closing in on two new signings after their manager Malky Mackay confirmed they have had a bid accepted for France midfielder Etienne Capoue.

The newly-promoted Premier League side are believed to have offered £9m to Toulouse but face competition from Atletico Madrid for the 25-year-old.

Brentford goalkeeper Simon Moore is expected to complete his move to south Wales today after agreeing personal terms.
