Moroccan Taarabt close to France return with PSG

Adel Taarabt

QPR midfielder Adel Taarabt has confirmed talks with French club PSG over a possible move.

The Moroccan played a pivotal role in QPR’s Championship triumph but had consistently stated his desire to quit the London outfit.

Taarabt told BBC Sport: “We’re talking with Paris Saint-Germain, but nothing is done.

“We’re very close, but if no deal is reached then I will play for QPR in the Premier League.”

The 22-year-old began his playing career at Lens in 2005 before then director of football at Tottenham, Damien Comolli, brought him to White Hart Lane in 2007.

However, the Moroccan failed to break into the first team and moved to QPR on loan in July 2009.

After quickly establishing himself in Neil Warnock’s team, Taarabt signed a permanent deal in August 2010.

He played a key role in QPR’s successful promotion to the Premier League and was named Football League player of the year in March.

If a deal goes through, it is understood that Tottenham would receive 35% of the transfer fee.
