Ex-Sunderland goalkeeper Keiren Westwood could be in line for a shock return to football having not played professionally for 13th months, according to reports.

The ex-Manchester City man joined QPR during the 2021-22 season with the club in the middle of a goalkeeping crisis but Westwood was to leave Loftus Road at the end of the season.

However, the Republic of Ireland international has not retired and remains open to potential approaches, with recent reports suggesting Westwood is in talks with a free agent switch to Shamrock Rovers.

The Irish club are attempting to extend their two-point lead at the top of the League of Ireland with Rovers looking at a short-term deal for Westwood to cover Alan Mannus after his injury.
