Looks like they can’t quite make up their minds on this matter.
Just a good thing they aren’t the ones in charge of transfers, otherwise nothing might ever get done. With the January transfer window slowly coming to a close, clubs might be starting to get a little anxious when it comes to losing their players, and QPR are no exception to that rule.
Reports are circulating that Nahki Wells’ parent club Burnley are set to recall him with the intention of creating a ‘bidding war’ for his services given that he only has 6 months left on his current contract. Wells is currently QPR’s top scorer this season, with 14 goals in all competitions, but it looks as if he could be on his way out if Burnley have their say.
But depending on who you talk to amongst the QPR faithful, you might get a different response on what they believe in the matter. Some think that he needs to be kept at all costs, whilst others don’t really seem all that concerned with losing him.
Personally as much I like Wells at #QPR I wouldn't pay 5m for him now even if we had the cash. 30 year and out of contract in summer with no sell on value.
Suppose the only trouble is we are the only club in the championship that 5m seems a lot to spend.

Hughill is a quality striker. Let's not forget that before we go into a state of depression over Wells. 3 of our players being linked with Prem teams, been a long time since that happened too #QPR

People need to chill out over Wells going. Yes he’s been decent the last 3/4 games. But before that he hadn’t scored in ages. Missed so many huge chances in the games he didn’t score aswell. Yeah he’ll be a loss. But he’s 30 in a few months, and we can replace. Chill out #QPR

We can't seriously let Wells go now? Now is the time to make the offer, he wants to stay #QPR

I would be gutted to lose Wells, but he isn't a contracted QPR player. We can't compete in bidding wars, I just hope he feels valued enough to hold on for a potential summer move to us and stays. This one's not down to the board imo. Burnley hold the cards. #QPR

So,Nakki Wells. Good goalscorer at this level & we've done well to have had him on loan for the past 18 months considering our financial plight. But money talks in football & his future is out of our hands unfortunately. Also the main negative of borrowing good players. #QPR

Scandalous if we let him go to another Champ club #never learn

Will we be able to keep hold of Wells this window?
With less than ten days to go until the window slams shut, let’s see how many twists and turns this story will go through.
