London - Mark Hughes is in talks with Queens Park Rangers about filling the managerial vacancy at the Premier League club.

The former Wales, Manchester City, Blackburn and Fulham manager is at QPR's Loftus Road stadium with adviser Kia Joorabchian, a day after Neil Warnock was fired on Sunday.

Hughes has been out of work since quitting Fulham at the end of last season.

The former Manchester United and Chelsea striker's priority will be keeping QPR in the Premier League.

The west London club have lost six of their last eight league matches to sit 17th in the standings, one point above the relegation zone in their first season back in the topflight after 15 years.

They are looking to appoint Warnock's successor before Sunday's match at Newcastle.
