Critchley confirms QPR have rejected Dykes bid

Neil Critchley has confirmed that QPR have rejected a bid from Millwall for Lyndon Dykes.

The Lions offered a deal potentially worth up to £3m for Dykes, while Stoke have indicated that they are also interested in him.

“We’ve had a bid but it’s short of our valuation,” R’s head coach Critchley said.

Rangers have been linked with the Scotland striker since Mick Beale quit Loftus Road to take over as manager at the Glasgow club.

However, Beale was unhappy with his attacking options during his brief spell at QPR – during which Dykes went 10 matches without scoring – and was keen to bring in another striker.

Dykes, 27, was signed from Livingston in August 2020 and has scored 26 goals in 102 Championship appearances for the R’s. Six of those goals have come this season.

Meanwhile, QPR defender Leon Balogun has seen a specialist about his calf injury.
