Transfer gossip: QPR linked with winger McPake

QPR are interested in signing winger Josh McPake from Scottish champions Rangers, it is claimed.

The 19-year-old is on loan at Harrogate Town and is said to have been scouted by QPR and Bristol City.

Football Insider claim both Championship clubs have “sent talent spotters” to watch McPake in action and are involved in a race to sign him.

Restrictions imposed because of Covid-19 have in fact prevented clubs from sending scouts to matches for the best part of a year.

Scouts are currently only permitted to attend matches if watching a player on loan from their club, or a team their club will face in its next three fixtures.
