Swansea City and Wales defender Jazz Richards is a target for Queens Park Rangers, Fulham and Derby.

QPR, recently relegated from the Premier League, and Championship side Fulham have both enquired about the possibility of a permanent transfer for the right-back.

Richards, 24, made 14 league appearances on loan for Fulham earlier this season.

The four-cap Wales international has a year left on his current contract.

With fellow right-backs Kyle Naughton and Angel Rangel at the club, however, Richards has found his first-team opportunities limited at Liberty Stadium.

Since making his Swans debut in 2009 Richards has made 39 league appearances for the club and had loan spells at Crystal Palace and Huddersfield, as well as the Cottagers.

The versatile full-back, who can also play in midfield, played in Swansea's last three Premier League matches of 2014-15.

But he is understood to be open to a move in order to enhance his international prospects.

Richards has been named in Wales' squad for the Euro 2016 qualifier against Belgium on 12 June.

Unbeaten Wales are currently second in Group B, behind the Belgians on goal difference with five games to go.
