Transfer gossip: Fulham among clubs linked with Dykes

Some of the latest transfer speculation involving QPR…

QPR striker Lyndon Dykes

QPR striker Lyndon Dykes is attracting interest from other clubs, including Fulham, it is claimed.

The Scotland international has struggled for much of his first season in west London but is in excellent form, having scored six goals in as many matches.


And Teamtalk claim there will be “a battle to hang on to” Dykes and that Fulham, Burnley and West Brom are “ready to test QPR’s resolve” after watching his progress.


R’s linked with Porteous

QPR are interested in Hibernian’s Scotland Under-21 centre-back Ryan Porteous, the Daily Record reckon.

The newspaper claim director of football Les Ferdinand “has had him watched regularly in recent weeks” and that Rangers are “weighing up a move” for Porteous.

It is also claimed that Millwall had a £1m bid for the 22-year-old rejected in January and that QPR would “need to go in significantly higher than that and with serious add-ons” in order to sign him.


Hammers eyeing Dieng, Sun claim

West Ham are the latest club to have been linked with Seny Dieng.

The QPR goalkeeper, now a Senegal international, has impressed for Mark Warburton’s side this season.

It has led to speculation that a Premier League club could come in for him during the summer.

And The Sun say West Ham are ready to pay £6m for Dieng, who signed a four-year deal in September so is under contract until 2024.

Rangers manager Warburton has since dismissed the story.

Warburton told West London Sport: “Where does this come from? Where do these figures come from?

“The validity of that source is questionable at best, I think. Put it that way.

“And the bigger picture; if any player leaves it will be for QPR’s valuation. Everyone’s got a price. The best player the world has a price if you’re prepared to pay it.

“If any player leaves QPR it will be if the board deem it to be good value for the club.”
