The 32-year-old centre-back has entered the final year of his contract with Sunderland and Tony Mowbray’s side have decided not to offer him an extension.


Blackburn Rovers boss Jon-Dahl Tomasson is an admirer of Batth and he is keen to add him to his squad.




Rovers have held a series of discussions with Sunderland regarding a potential deal, but due to a strict financial budget, they are unable to reach a conclusion.


QPR have joined the race as Gareth Ainsworth wants to add the experienced defender to the back line to strengthen his defence.



And it has been claimed that QPR will hold further talks with Sunderland within the next 24 hours to find a solution for Batth’s future.


It is said that QPR could push to complete the deal before their next game against Cardiff City at the weekend.



And now it remains to be seen whether both parties will be able to find a solution soon for Batth.
