QPR interested in Sterling as Furlong heads to West Brom

QPR are interested in a potential deal to sign Chelsea right-back Dujon Sterling on loan as a replacement for Darnell Furlong, who is poised to join West Brom.

Furlong, 23, the son of former Blues and R’s striker Paul, is on the verge of a permanent move to the Baggies for a fee of around £1.5m.

He made 29 appearances last season and has played 72 times for the club since making his debut as a teenager in the Premier League in February 2015.

Chelsea academy product Sterling, 19, has made two first-team appearances for the Blues – both as a substitute.

But he played 40 games on loan for League One side Coventry City last season.
