QPR are considering an offer from Southend United to take teenage striker Hamzad Kargbo on loan.
Kargbo, 19, has been training with the Essex club with a view to a loan move.
But Southend boss Phil Brown has indicated that the youngster might not be a first-team regular – at least at first.
Brown is now waiting for Rangers to make a decision.
“With Hamzad I’ve made reference to him being work in progress,” he told the Southend Echo.
“He might be a sub to start with it and would have to force his way in with work.
“I’ve put that to QPR and I’m waiting for them to get back to me.”
