LONDON (REUTERS) - Queens Park Rangers defender Ryan Nelsen is considering a coaching role in the United States in what would be a major blow for the Premier League club's battle against relegation.

"He has been offered a job in America and there is every chance that he might want to go," manager Harry Redknapp told reporters after the Londoners' 1-1 draw at home to West Bromwich Albion in the third round of the FA Cup on Saturday.

"He wants to be a manager and it's a chance for him to go and manage a club," added Redknapp.

New Zealand captain Nelsen, 35, joined QPR from Tottenham Hotspur on a one-year contract in June. He played for D.C. United in Major League Soccer between 2001 and 2005.
