Queens Park Rangers have opted against a move to bring George Cox to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium this summer.
That’s according to a claim made by David McIntyre, with the West London Sport journalist revealing in a post on Twitter that talks had stalled with Fortuna Sittard regarding a deal for the left-back, with Mark Warburton having now appeared to have turned his focus in the transfer market elsewhere after seeing a £500k bid for the defender rejected.
McIntyre did go on to state that QPR could look to pick the deal up again in the future, however, at present, there are no talks ongoing between the two clubs.
With Cox having shown a great deal of promising following his move to Fortuna from Brighton & Hove Albion back in 2019, the fact that QPR do not look likely to be welcoming the defender to the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium this summer should leave fans of Rs gutted.
Indeed, over his 33 Eredivisie appearances last season, the 23-year-old helped his side keep three clean sheets, as well as making an average of 2.4 interceptions, 1.8 tackles and making 2.3 clearances per game.
Cox also highly impressed in an attacking capacity, with the £900k-rated left-back scoring five goals, registering five assists and creating six big chances for his teammates, in addition to making an average of 0.9 key passes per game.
As such, considering how impressive Cox has been during his time in the Netherlands, the youngster would have very much appeared to make a fantastic addition to Warburton’s options at left-back next season.
However, following McIntyre’s recent update, unfortunately for fans of the Rs, a deal for the defender does not appear likely at present.
