Some of the recent transfer speculation involving QPR…

The Evening Standard claim QPR are among Championship clubs keen on Tottenham youngster Dilan Markanday.

Bournemouth, West Brom and Scottish rivals Rangers and Celtic are also said to be interested in the 20-year-old winger.


His Spurs contract expires at the end of the season and the speculation over his future comes amid negotiations over a new deal.

The Standard say Spurs would like him to sign a new contract and then go out on loan but that “a permanent exit cannot be ruled out”.


Daily Record link QPR with Souttar

QPR are among clubs said to be interested in Hearts central defender John Souttar.

The Daily Record say Scottish giants Rangers and Celtic both want Souttar but that he would favour a move to England.

And it is claimed that QPR, who have a wealth of options at centre-back, are among those keen on him.

The others linked are Stoke, Blackburn, Millwall, Middlesbrough, Luton, Birmingham, Blackpool and Preston.

The Scotland international’s contract expires at the end of the season.


Dickie speculation

West Ham might move for QPR defender Rob Dickie, it has been claimed.

Football League World claim the Hammers “could turn to the Championship” after their centre-back Angelo Ogbonna suffered anterior cruciate ligament damage.

Dickie and Middlesbrough’s Dael Fry are touted as two possible options for the east London club.

It is claimed that West Ham have “made checks” on both players.
