It would be a pretty convincing way to put a lot of these rumours to bed.
The big question with a report like this though, isn’t so much where he’s going to play, but who is going to be around to play him. Whilst there are conflicting reports about the future of Mark Warburton at QPR, it would seem as if plans are in place to keep Warburton exactly where he is. Because at the end of the day, it doesn’t make logical sense to give him rein over the transfer budget and then sack him soon after.
A report from TWTD suggests that Queens Park Rangers are interested in bringing in Ipswich Town defender Luke Woolfenden. The 21-year-old defender has played 13 times for the East Anglian side this year, helping the team reach second place in the League One table.
It would be a lot of progression for the young man, as he was only playing League Two football last season, so to make the jump from the fourth tier to the second in the space of a year might prove to be a bit of a challenge.
But the good thing is, I wouldn’t expect him to be challenging straight away for a starting position, given that QPR already have a number of more experienced centre-backs, this would be a great chance for him to develop with the side rather than being thrown in at the deep end as it were.
And that’s why I like this move, because this isn’t simply looking for a quick fix solution to our problems, but it could really be something that sets the club up for the next couple of years, hopefully taking advantage of the ‘rebuilding’ model that I spoke about yesterday.
Where do the club need to invest the most in January?
What about you? Do you think that this would be a good move for the future? Or do you think that the club should look for more immediate fixes?
