Queens Park Rangers right to make fringe players available for loans

Queens Park Rangers are willing to let seven of their players leave the club on loan, according to West London Sport.

What’s the word?

The Championship outfit had a horror start to the season as they lost their opening four games.

Recently, though, manager Steve McClaren has been able to turn things around and the club now find themselves in contention for the playoffs.

As it stands, QPR are 10th in the table, two points adrift of the top six after 17 fixtures.

Understandably, McClaren will not want to disrupt a winning formula, which means that a handful fo fringe players could be shown the door in January, albeit on a temporary basis.

According to West London Sport, QPR are prepared to let Sean Goss, Paul Smyth, Osman Kakay, Aramide Oteh, Niko Hamalainen, Ilian Chair and Giles Phillips leave on loan deals.

Any surprises in there?

The majority of players in the list are in the youth squads, therefore securing loan moves will be beneficial for them.

Footballers who are developing their game need to be playing as much competitive action as possible, but QPR cannot provide that right now.

The only two surprises are Sean Goss and Paul Smyth, mainly because both players have had runs in the first team.

Goss joined the R’s last year from Manchester United, but has failed to kick on since spending the second half of the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Rangers.

As for Smyth, he has only featured four times in all competitions this season, and in only one of those appearances he started.
