QPR are set to pull the plug on their triple swoop for Tottenham’s Jermaine Jenas, David Bentley and Andros Townsend, Goal.com understands.

Harry Redknapp wanted to bring in the midfield trio on deadline day but negotiations have broken down with Spurs.

Townsend had arrived at Rangers’ medical base in west London early on Thursday morning to undertake a medical but failed to take it after QPR pulled out of the deal.

2/1 QPR are 2/1 to sign Peter Crouch before 1 February 2013 with Bet Victor
It is understood that Rangers were put off by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy’s demand that the relegation strugglers take all three players or none at all.

Two of the deals would have had to be permanent because Premier League regulations limit the numbers of loans between the same pair of top-flight clubs to one per season.

QPR are only willing to return to the negotiating table if Levy is willing to grant them more room for manoeuvre.
