Henry set for Rs move

Wolves midfielder Karl Henry is set for a move to QPR with Harry Redknapp confirming the deal could be done on Tuesday.

I've always liked Karl. He's a good sort, he's a competitor. He looks like he wants to win.

He's captain of Wolves and whenever I came up against him he always had that attitude about him that he's very determined. I think he is what we need at the club.

He's a bit of a leader on the pitch and he will be a big asset for us. He is having a medical and it should go through today (Tuesday).
