Mark Hughes has revealed Queens Park Rangers are likely to make a renewed attempt to sign Tottenham defender Michael Dawson in January.

Dawson was the subject of interest from the R's in the summer, but Hughes failed to persuade the centre-back to make the move.

Dawson has found himself out of the picture under Andre Villas-Boas at White Hart Lane and Hughes feels that could play in his favour come January.

"Maybe Michael's situation happened too quickly for him to understand what his future is at Spurs," Hughes told the Daily Star.

"We took it as far as we were able to and he would have been a good acquisition but it wasn't to be.

"In January that might be different if he is still out of the team but we may have moved on by then."
