There is speculation over Paul Smyth following QPR’s offer for the Linfield forward.

West London Sport recently revealed that the R’s had made an offer for the 19-year-old and subsequently that they had yet to receive an answer from Linfield, whose directors are expected to meet this week to discuss the offer.

The Belfast Telegraph, on the other hand, say QPR’s bid has been rejected but that a deal is close because the offer was close to Linfield’s valuation of Smyth.

The Belfast Telegraph also say there is interest in the player from other clubs and declare that QPR “are clearly huge admirers of Smyth” and “are anxious to get the deal over the line.”

It has been claimed that he is also wanted by Reading, London Football News reports.

A Reading scout recently attended a Linfield game, prompting reports that the Royals are keen on Smyth.
