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?

  • I think we need to nail down a permanent striker not had any quality frontman since Charlie austin,let’s also sort out a contract for wells

    • I agree with you Chris 100%. At the same time I believe that the owners of Q.P.R. need to come out & say tjat Mark Warburton is the manager & will be for the length of his contract. It will take time. There will be Ups as well as Downs , but since his appointment he has developed a number of players who have added value to the club. There is No Point in changing the manager. All the teams that have stuck with their manager have by in large reaped the rewards. The owners felt that Mark Warburton was the right man for the job so let him carry on. He has brought a style of play that is refreshing. If he is given the money to buy a defender or two & sign Wells from Burnley then it will be a good transfer window.

  • I know we have yet to record a clean sheet & we do need to beef up the defense. But I look at our team & see our Major problem is going to be keeping hold of our youngsters Eze & Manning. Our first choice forwards are loanees.
    I can see us going from one problem to another.
