No move for Wszolek but Borysiuk could leave QPR

QPR have so far received no enquiries about Pawel Wszolek despite reports in his native Poland linking him with a move to Legia Warsaw.

But Ariel Borysiuk could well return to Poland, this time on a permanent basis.

Midfielder Borysiuk, 26, was signed from Legia in the summer of 2016 but has not impressed Ian Holloway, who took over as manager at Loftus Road later that year.

He spent the second half of last season on loan with another of his ex-clubs, Lechia Gdansk, and has not made a league appearance for the R’s since returning to west London.

Both his former clubs in Poland have been made aware of his availability and Rangers are keen to agree a deal for him to return to his homeland before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

Clubs elsewhere in Europe have been sounded out too as part of the effort to offload him before the transfer deadline.

Borysiuk, who has also played in Germany for Kaiserslautern and in Russia, on loan at the now defunct FC Volga, has made just 11 Championship appearances for QPR, with eight of those coming as a substitute.

Wszolek is ‘concerned’ – Holloway

Holloway has played down speculation over Wszolek’s future but admitted the winger is “concerned” at not being a regular in the QPR side.

Wszolek has been in and out of the team this season and was left out against Middlesbrough on Saturday in favour of Darnell Furlong.

And with the World Cup approaching, Wzsolek believes he needs to be playing regularly.

Speaking at the weekend, Holloway said: “If people are talking about Pav and they’ve seen that he’s not in the team, he’s not in the team because Furs did brilliantly last week and that’s who I needed.

“There’ll be all sorts of speculation about everybody, but he’s a very good player.

“We’re trying to build a squad and a team and he’s concerned about playing for Poland if he doesn’t play for his team, so there will always speculation.

“But he’s a wonderful kid, he hasn’t moaned and I might have to play him against Bristol City next week, so I’m not bothered about any of that (reports Wszolek could leave).

“It would be nice if people wanted our players because they’re good players, and when you look at it that will be the case.”

Changing things around

Rangers are open to offers for players, with Holloway keen to bring in new faces during this month’s transfer window.

Financial Fair Play restrictions mean making signings is only possible if the squad is reduced, hence the recent departures of Steven Caulker and Yeni Ngbakoto as well as a number of youngsters.

“We are where we are and I don’t know how it’s going to go,” Holloway said.

“If we move out then we might be able to move in. If I change things around then I might be able to change things around.

“If I don’t change things around then the young players will come in and hopefully they’ll give us what they’ve been giving us.

“In the summer there’s about eight out of contract and they’re all fighting for their lives. So am I – I’m fighting for this club.”
