R'S DEFENDER Ryan Nelsen has agreed a deal to take charge of MLS side FC Toronto.
The New Zealand defender - who joined Rangers on a free transfer in the summer - was approached about pursuing a coaching role with the Canadian club, which he has now accepted.
Nelsen is under contract with QPR until June 30th 2013, however, he has requested to enter dialogue with QPR boss Harry Redknapp to discuss when he will join up with his new club.
In the meantime, Nelsen will be available for the R’s Barclays Premier League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
Nelsen, of course, spent four years of his career in the MLS for DC United, between 2001 and 2005.
He was named in the MLS team of the season after captaining the team to their fourth MLS Cup in 2004. He scored seven goals and added five assists in the four years he spent there.
