Ryan Nelsen is set to leave struggling QPR and take over as manager of Toronto FC in Major League Soccer, Press Association Sport understands.
The 35-year-old has been one of the west Londoners' few shining lights this season, having joined in June following spells at Blackburn and Tottenham. Nelsen has made 21 appearances in all competitions but now looks set to leave Loftus Road to take up his first managerial role.
Press Association Sport understands the defender is in Toronto to discuss the vacant post, having been granted a few days off training by manager Harry Redknapp. It is unclear whether the job in Canada would also see him make a playing a return to MLS, having made his name there during a four-year spell with DC United.
