Steve McClaren has indicated that Paul Smyth could be allowed to leave QPR on loan ahead of next week’s deadline.
Portsmouth are interested in the 20-year-old forward, who was not in the matchday squad for Rangers’ 1-0 win against Wigan on Saturday.
And manager McClaren suggested after the game that he is open to Smyth moving elsewhere in order to play first-team football.
McClaren, who recently allowed Ryan Manning to join Rotherham on loan, said: “We’ll have to look. We’ve got some good talent here – good youngsters – and a game like today you maybe can’t play them.”
Loan signing Tomer Hemed scored the winner at Loftus Road, where McClaren switched to a 4-4-2 formation and asked Ebere Eze to play on the flank.
“Eze, this was a tough game for him today,” McClaren said.
“We asked him to do a job and work hard and he did that. That’s part of his learning the other side of the game.
“He (Eze) has got great talent and we’ve got a lot of players like that – players that need football, not necessarily in our team but elsewhere, so we’re looking at that.”
