Earlier this afternoon it was being reported that fresh from knocking back a bid from Blackburn Rovers for midfielder Luke Freeman, Middlesbrough and Tony Pulis had reignited their earlier interest in the player and come back to Loftus Road with an improved bid.

To save overly repeating the bulk of the story.

Middlesbrough Enter Battle With Increased Bid For QPR Midfielder

Suffice to say, no speculation was offered in terms of what the ‘increased’ bid could be from the Riverside Stadium outfit and there was no word on whether Blackburn continued to have an interest after their rejection, nor whether Sheffield United who had also been linked earlier with a move, had firmed up interest of their own in the 26-year-old.

Queens Park Rangers owner Tony Fernandes took the time to respond personally to one man a few days ago to state that Freeman was not for sale this window and fans are desperate to see him hold to his word despite our known financial position in terms of Financial Fair Play.

Reacting to the latest development on social media, some fans believed that without Freeman we are going down this year and a stronger message can’t be made from the fan base in my humble.

It could be a very long hour as fans wait for 5pm to tick by and then we cross fingers that the preliminary paperwork hadn’t moved to enable an extension. By 6pm we should be safe on Freeman, or in meltdown – one of the two.
