QPR midfielder Marc Bircham could move to either Nottingham Forest or Leeds when the transfer window re-opens in January.
Bircham is out of contract at Loftus Road next summer but has yet to be offered new terms - and Leeds and Forest are waiting to pounce with offers of a three-year deal.
Leeds manager Dennis Wise is a firm admirer of the tough-tackling 28-year-old, whom he believes would give his side a huge boost in their fight against relegation. Wise could present Rangers with a player-swap deal at the turn of the year.
But Forest - six points clear at the top of League One and favourites for promotion to the Championship - would also like to sign the former Millwall midfielder.
Bircham would move to Forest on an initial free transfer, with a fee to be paid at the end of the season if Colin Calderwood's team clinch promotion.
Bircham - currently sidelined with a hamstring injury - was frozen out by former Rangers chief Gary Waddock and was told he could leave the club. But the Canada international fought his way back under new boss John Gregory, who even handed Bircham the captain's armband before his injury.
