Ramsey stands firm over Phillips asking price

Chris Ramsey has reiterated that QPR will not reduce their asking price for Matt Phillips.

West London Sport revealed last month that Rangers had rejected an offer from West Brom for Phillips and want £10m for the 23-year-old winger.

QPR director of football Les Ferdinand later dismissed reports that Albion were moving closer to reaching an agreement.

And head coach Ramsey says there is currently no prospect of the Scotland international being allowed to leave Loftus Road.

“We’ve had offers for him but they’ve been [from] people who are trying to take advantage of our situation,” Ramsey said.

“He’s an exciting young player who wants to learn and I think he’ll only get better. We haven’t had the right offer for him so he won’t be going anywhere.”

There has been speculation over the futures of several other Rangers players, including goalkeeper Robert Green.

But Ramsey, who wants to sign Southend keeper Dan Bentley, says he is desperate for Green, 35, to stay.

“I’m chaining him to the post – he’s not going anywhere,” Ramsey joked.

He added: “Rob had a world class season, and for him to be in the England squad at his age shows you how professional he is.

“If I’m at another club, I’m trying to get him. I’d imagine there will be speculation about his future all through this year, but he’s a very good professional.”
